10am. I fear I have left the Tutor Costume for Friday’s (2 days time) trip to Kentwell somewhat too late…
10.15am I hand-drew this pattern based on this adult pattern. The first attempt was actually made for Pixie, but having made the first mistake of the day (forgetting seam allowances), it seamlessly (excuse the pun) becomes Squiggle’s. It’s a one-piece front because my machine does not do button holes and I have not got enough time to hand-finish button-holes, so we have sacrificed the front laces.
3.00pm after several hours and a quick dash to Hobbycraft, I have finished the top half of Squiggle’s kirtle.
3.30pm Attaching the skirt to the top. (Please ignore the atrocious hemming/finishing. Not enough time for the niceties)
4.00pm Almost there with the first kirtle – I really hope the second two are quicker.
Just the back of the kirtle to go.
4.40pm One finished kirtle
11.00pm After an interlude to go to a meeting, the second kirtle is done.
