After much hemming and hawing, I finally finished the eyelets on the black kirtle. Remember how I said I used waxed linen 4-ply for the eyelets? Well, never do that. Ever. Such a pain! I would have finished in half the time had I been using proper thread. So let this be a lesson to myself – don’t cheap out and ‘make do’!
(But this also means that the eyelets on the red kirtle are going to just zoom by!)
Only the sleeves to go, and I will be ready to hand off the whole project come this Saturday – what a relief!!!
