Green Steam's Mate

This is what my husband wore when we went to the costume party around Halloween. It was the mate to my green steampunk get up. We did not want to get too into it with him since steampunk is my thing, not his. Plus, I wanted to make something that could possibly be re-wearable. Which my son was quite happy about...he quickly claimed the coat as his.

The cravat was a bit of a guesswork piece. I did find some decent tutorials online, but when I went to make it  just went on memory. Turned out fine. We did have a decent pin he used,  but I couldn't find it for this pic...sorry :(

 The vest is an awesome brocade I got at Haberman Fabrics. The green really popped it.

The sleeves needed some work up at the top, but the bottom turned out great. I love the button detail.

I posted a quick snapshot of us from the party if you want to see the two together, goggles and all.
