When I originally made this kirtle, I was aware of the pattern placement, I assure you! I liked the way it looked as a ‘slice’ down the front in a “V”, but on it’s own, it is obviously not the pattern placement I would normally use. Oh well.
Here are three partlet options; the first is my silk organdy partlet that I wear with my coats – it’s a bit floppy to use on it’s own without the supporting coat collar.
The second and third options are a linen partlet; worn inside and outside the kirtle.
I’m probably going to go with my plain collared shirt, however. (I loves me the tassels. I can’t help myself!)
And here are the three sleeve options. I haven’t quite decided which I’m going to go with. I completely <3 my pinked silk sleeves, but I’m not enamored of the yellow-orange ribbons that are on them right now, so if I go with those, I will be changing out the ribbons for something else.
I’m thinking I actually may not worry about doing a shoulder treatment since I still need to figure out this gown, and finish 2.5 more of the kirtle sleeves to pass off on Saturday.
I need to contact my Laurel and see if she still has my pulled-work coif….I haven’t worn it in a year or two, and I kinda miss it!
