Pictures of recent projects...

A partlet - from period patterns, German cranach gown pattern, view IX I believe. Lined with 100% cotton, outer layer is blue velveteen (because I couldn't afford cotton velvet lol.

I'm pretty happy with how this turned out, and I made it in a afternoon.

Italian gown, in gold brocade, black velvet arms and placket, with partlet and muslin undergown. quite happy with this stash buster, (everthing was made from fabric I already owned), the second photo shows the gathering in the back.
Isnt quite complete yet, still have to sew down the fur and tweak a few things...

And finally, a doublet, haven't yet finished the waist seam, but pretty pleased with this. It has four spring steel bones, two and front and two at back, and hand sewn eyelets down the front, lined with yellow pin stripe cotton, outer green brocade. This took a good few days work, but I'm very pleased with it. This isn't the under dress it will be worn with, just something period-ish to put on for fitting.

Hope you enjoy...
