Head is spinning still after an awesome Double Wars, so many classes and so much inspiration! I was especially happy for the frilled veil-class, the starch-class and of course the one on Opus Anglicanum. And today I got Lias pretty picture of me wearing the frilled veil that I now can starch properly with barley starch. That will keep it in shape so much better than the spray starch.
Sadly the Dürer-inspired hat didn´t get done so I´m saving tha for another blog post soon...

Now it is finally done and I´m pretty pleased with myself.
It is sewn in a rather heavy nettle fabric, a bit golden white, and is mainly inspired by the german-swiss embroidered smocked hemds seen on both men and women in the late 15th and early 16th century.

|This is the result, however it will look a lot less bulky with the tight overdress|
