Sideless Surcoat

So I’m working on a sideless surcoat yeah? I mentioned it in regards to silk facings.  In any case I’m using the blue wool I bought at the same time as that terrible plaid fabric of misfortune.

The dress sans facings, hemmings or trimmings. and one set of gores. . .

I’ve affectionately named this one the Hell Dress, simply because it makes my friends giggle and on account of it being referenced as the “Gates of Hell” by medieval priests. I’m planning on doing some kind of embroidery around the neckline and armholes, just to give it some kind of “prettiness factor”.

I know I'm not the best embroiderer in the world, but I was thinking with something simple, it shouldn't be too hard. I'm leaning toward the design in the middle.
