Of the late 15th century Armourer's wife... 5

For those of you who are reading this strand for the first time or need a reminder, this is the story of the dress thus far:

Part 1
Part 2
Part 3
Part 4

It seems this project is an ongoing experiment - I had the opportunity to wear it for the first time at a show recently; even then altering and finishing it.

It's not being worn here with the final underdress, but it looks quite nice with the green damask! One friend has already asked for a pattern of it so they can have a version too. A lot of people ask how I get the belt to stay, but it sits very comfortably on the gathered skirt.Can't help but be tempted to try wearing a corset underneath, though it'd need taking in first! ;-)

Fingers crossed there'll be a photo of it being worn with the black brocade sleeves and red underdress soon!

Of Sam's Sari Maxi Dress 2... finished!!

For those of you who read this blog post a while ago, i'm proud to announce that this dress was recently completed! :-) Sam seems happy with the result, so here are some brief finished shots:

It needed ironing, but it fitted! Hoping that there will be some shots of her wearing it for her birthday party coming soon! :-)
