Hi, Elizabeth here, and this Treadlette Tuesday I thought I'd share one of my own recent projects!
I made this c. 1560s style kirtle from wool using a pattern from the wonderful book The Tudor Tailor. Historically it would have been sewn all by hand but I used a combination of hand and machine sewing. The sleeves are also wool, and the shift and cap are made of handkerchief linen.
I wore this to a costume convention and I'll also be wearing it to the Minnesota Renaissance Festival!
