Wedding Anniversaries and Frock Coats...

So, way back in May it was my second wedding anniversary.  For those of you not in the know that's cotton.  My husband is a wonderful man and my present was fabric!  The piece of fabric I'm particularly thinking of is the dark green cotton velvet.  Just enough to make a frock coat out of. :)

So I dug out my patterns, rooted through for the frock coat one, made it up and then...  Well nothing.  I had no use for a frock coat at the time and I certainly wasn't planning on giving this one away to anyone else!  Luckily for me however an evil campaign was devised and I created and anarchy priestess out of little used bits and bobs.  She wears a green and black brocade under bust corset (from corsets uk I think), a shirt picked up from a costume shop in a hurry and originally used by my guard, black mens combat trousers (Burtons) and my lovely frock coat. 

Photos on location no less!

I love the yellow lining!

The trim is a chiffon ribbon

I love this coat!

The green and the yellow work really well together to make a coat that feels 'evil' but not traditionally so.  I'm debating a jaunty green hat to add to this outfit I must admit though...
