well I cut the lovely white linen and am almost finished sewing.
Half lined kirtle with lacing up the front.
The fabric is just lovely!
Spotlight had a 30% off sale so bought three metres of pale blue, and another 3 metres of olive green to make surcoats.
This wont happen before the weekend, as still have lining and lacing and eyelets to sew.

You're fast!  I got my fabric but have not cut it yet because I want to refine the pattern a bit more....still not sure about the sleeves.....

well I wore everything to the event, this weekend. The natural linen Saturday, the white kirtle and surcoat for feast Saturday night, and the white kirtle Sunday.
Had a brilliant time!

Argh, I might wimp out of my own sew-along.  The Greenland dress pattern is such a pain, it has 12 parts, too many seams!  I haven't even managed to finish my test version......   Huh

One seam at a time babe. That way every time you sit down to it it's a new and exciting project Wink.

One seam at a time is very good advice  Grin
plus do you really need more than a bodice test piece?

I realize I mostly enjoy making the patterns for historical garments, but I don't enjoy that much the sewing of the final article plus I don't have anywhere to wear them!   Tongue   I might revisit the Miranda dress later, with a non-historical pattern...or at least one that isn't so tedious.....

lol, no worries! the sewing part is the part I enjoy the most,(the pattern making not so much hehe,)  and the wearing, and have planned to attend some events to be able to do so.  Grin
(Went to a SCA archery practice on the weekend and tried it for the first time!~)

I want to just have the dress without having to make it!   Roll Eyes  And I want to look like the girl in the Waterhouse paintings, etc etc!

I'm pretty sure there are events I could attend if I had the $ for travel, but, I don't.  Tongue  I have been able to lend historical garments to my sister, who is active in LARP, so it's not a total loss!
