But I recently found this wonderful striped linen. It is a lovely quality and drape and would make for a wonderful summer's gown.
And then I found this picture.
And I already made this kind of dress twice, so the patterns is true and tried.
And my 17th century shirt project is going so well that I will probably finish it within a few days and then I will need a new hand-sewing project. And, correct me if I'm wrong, but wouldn't a striped, 1790's gown make for a wonderful hand-sewing project? It is almost like I has no choice. Right?
