Pink kirtle progress...
This thing is WAY brighter in person! Kinda obnoxious, which is awesome. Left to do: mostly small stuff. Hem the sleeve cuffs (I don't have ape arms!), add the hook and eye to close the skirt at the back waist, and possibly add another row of guarding. I really like the look of multiple rows of guards, like my purple kirtle, so time permitting, I'll likely do another row.
I'm a bit bummed because I don't have another SCA event to go to until december, which is Solstice Court, and that's still only a possibility. Therefore, my sewing has been stagnant for weeks. Why sew something new that I can't wear for ages?! I don't even need a new dress for Solstice because no one down south has seen my epic black elizabethan, so I'm going to wear that. The group next door is hosting an italian-themed event in february, so I'm considering making a florentine gown for it, but we'll see. Le sigh :(
