1785 man's coat, waistcoat and breeches
This presented a huge challenge as it is my first attempt at painting!
I've found a fantastic product which is a 3D paint in Silver and the result looks like real embroidery.
So maybe other painted garments will come in the future ;)
Time was running fast as always and I didn't manage to take a lot of pictures while sewing.
The inspiration came from a delightful white silk man's suit with embroidered (or painted, difficult to tell) facings, pockets and cuffs.
Here's the original
