George may look the same, but he's not. Today, we added some embellishments, some bling, if you will. I made him epaulets, a watch fob and, tucked inside his waistcoat, he wears a miniature portrait of Martha on a string around his neck. I also added pockets to his waistcoat and "embroidered" buttonholes on his waistcoat, coat lapels and cuffs. Unfortunately, you can't really see those details in the photos ... but they make a big difference in real life!
