Not much to update really, just cutting out black velveteen sections. The centre back is now cut out and I have started on one side back piece, then its onto the side front. Everywhere I turn there seems to be small offcuts of black fabric missed by the broom :o).
In the Society for Creative Anachronism I am known as Lady Rose Pennyngton, an English Lady residing in Elizabethan London.
Sixteenth century English and Florentine costume are my main focus areas, and I particularly enjoy the challenge involved in creating garments based on portraits. I have also made garb from other eras as they were required for particular events, and bits and pieces for people as needed.
In the future I intend to kep working towards period authencity and completeness of costume from head to toe. And of course, continuing to have fun costuming :)
