I have NO idea why the picture came out gray - it's white on my screen, y'all. Sorry.
Simple cotehardie, in a blue silk from FabricMartFabrics (.com), given to me for my birthday by a friend. It's this color:
But with a shimmery woven stripe. 100% silk, lightweight suiting.
Floor-length tippets in white - I'm toying with the idea of doing them in a semi-sheer organza, since I have semi-sheer white organza.
Teeny silver buttons up the arms and down the front; though I haven't yet decided whether or not to do buttons allllll the way to the floor or not again.
So far, I've re-worked my raglan-sleeve cote pattern to fit me better; and I've gotten the dress and lining cut out (the lining is plain white cotton). The sleeves will be lined in a cornflower-blue washed silk, for when I want to unbutton them and turn back the cuffs.
I'm not sure exactly how I'll make the headdress, yet, either, but I have some ideas (1, 2, 3). (I did something similar a couple of years ago by just putting my hair up in two buns with big, plastic hair clips, and wrapping it all with fabric).
|not pointy, but, it's a start.|
I'm also still in the midst of re-decorating my sewing room. Actually, the last piece - my sewing table - has finally been finished, so I'm about to throw the whole room back together and actually begin working in there again (sewing on the cutting table in my art room = NO). Pics of that, and progress on the blue silk very soon. :)
