Fitted Gown design...again

Hey, so I'm planning an English fitted gown based on the Tudor Tailor pattern! (sound familiar?)

I've changed the design somewhat.
I decided against the puffed sleeves...both because they were difficult and scary to construct and because I think the plain sleeves look more mature to a modern aesthetic (and in period I would be very mature indeed!).

But the biggest change is the colour of the kirtle.  I still have the burgundy wool earmarked for this project (eventually) but for now I thought I should go with something that will also go nicely my new waistcoat.

So that's it for now! Hopefully this won't languish for another 3 years!
