burgundian-dress

My burgundian dress in it’s current state (it isn’t a dress yet) I think the collar turned out okay considering it was my first time using fur!

I love the leaf trim and beading on the waistband. I’m working on the sleeves now which have the same details. It’s a bit time consuming but totally worth it!

I’d really hoped to get started on my Burgundian dress and a menswear ensemble but i’m still sick and don’t trust myself to draft those patterns. So i’ve decided to spend this week making another kirtle. Not the most exciting thing, but it’s better than nothing!

This time i’m making one from black velvet, and it’s going to have long sleeves attached. I might add little sleeve rolls to the shoulder as well. And I have some damask print denim that I would like to turn into a vest to wear over this.

I think it’ll be a fun little project to keep me busy until i’m feeling better!
