Monday, Monday, Monday

Smock is done – yay!  It fits a bit off because of the gathering at the collar.  I didn’t space the neck gussets appropriately, so most of the gathering is at the back.  Oh, well.  It’s not unbearable yet.  I put everything on for a fitting so that I can start the gown this week–smock, corset #1, farthingale #2, prom-dress-converted-to-kirtle–and it went beautifully.  Tomorrow’s goal is to hem the kirtle and shorten the straps an inch or so.

I still have it in my head to make something new for this weekend, but I am slowly convincing myself to settle for sleeves to match my lower class bodice.  It’s getting chilly.

Thanks for reading!
