Almost Mantua

The nearest I have got to mantuas themselves are these two 18th century inspired jackets for my two lovely friends’ Civil Partnership ceremony. The dark blue one is based on a riding jacket with gorgeous, though nightmarish to make, pleats on the back. The pink one is a creation loosely based on caraco and gown styles, with lovely gathered pleats at the back. More pics will come.
