Seventeenth century outfit
I really haven’t done much this week between working.
I dont think I really needed a bum roll in the end – this was taken without- as the jacket poofs out quite nicely over the very full skirt.
i do regret not having taken the time to take the stays in when I did the fitting. They could have been two to four inches smaller without being tight, and as they stand I think I’d only have to loose a pound or two before they became uncomfortably loose. If I take them in I’ll have to take the jacket in as well, which, eurgh…I hate alterations.
i think the bottom bow also needs to move up about two inches as well, because it causes puckering when fully tied. I also want a better kerchief as this one bunches at the neck, but if have lace ordered so I might as well wait until that arrives.
