Completed Camlet Coat

It was a busy hot day but the camlet (petti)coat is complete. Here are some pictures of my progress...

Partially pleated, partially hemmed.
This fabric was great to work with. It takes a crease nicely and isn't as bulky as the worsted wool from the green gown. 
Almost done...
 Ta da!

(I know of 18th century documentation for petticoats being referred to as coats, I wasn't just stretching the term for the sake of alliteration.)
