Giant Bananas - check

I am working on the doublet tonight, and besides the fact that I am really glad that just about everything is cut out, I managed to get the rolled sleeve caps done.

I stuffed the sleeve caps with scraps of the same material, and I had just enough to stuff them fairly decently.

I have to say that I probably won't work with this fabric again, as it is hard on the hand to cut. I had to sharpen my sissors after every cut, just to make it easier. There's a bit more stretch to it than I had anticipated, so we'll see how well this works. I may flatline it to a non-stretchy material if it doesn't hang right.

It's going to be pretty plain,so we'll see if I can come up with some sort of small details that will make it nicer.
