No progress on the purple gown today. Life sort of got in the way. Had to get a new microwave this morning. The old one worked ok, but the interior was just worn out.
And instead of sewing garb this afternoon, I guess you could say that I went shopping for garb. Mistress Amy Marie MacCormack was cleaning out her garb closet, and I was lucky to be able to wear several pieces. I'm so very excited! Cool new garb to wear! There's a purple velvet Italian, a pink jacquard linen Italian, a green linen Italian and a blue linen Flemish (Van der Weyden), all finished and ready to wear. I will need to come up with a chemise or two, beyond what I already have as none are appropriate for Italians. And I'll be making a set of sleeves or two. Beyond that, it's just my hair and my footwear, so these are outfits that I will be able to use and enjoy!
I think that I have figured out how to finish the purple gown, and how to cut it better for the next one, but I'll have to work on it some more, before I can really tell much about it here. Still, it's been quite the productive weekend. Yeah!
