In a Tudor-ish Mood
So I started off thinking I could use the pattern from the tudor tailor book and make a smock to use as a night dress. And its ended up with me looking at my fabric stash and thinking...I think I could use some of that up making a kirtle.
I'm not sure about my nightdress collar
It just looks and feels awkward. I'm contemplating removing it and just adding a frill.
The kirtle bodice is still in the fitting stages. I just can't get the right shape. But then I found the book a little light on visual instructions. And I'm not exactly ideally shaped for the tudor era...too curvey.
