I am very seriously considering making an Italian style peasant dress instead of the Flemish style I planned on.  Because I'm difficult like that. 

I love the pleating on the green linen kirtle I made, but the bodice leaves much to be desired.  The over gown was supposed to be from this blue cotton stuff that is vaguely like wool and I would use that for the main body of the gown and then use the green linen as a lining and possibly guards.  I will probably dye the yellow linen an orangey color for sleeves or maybe guards and do the sleeves in green.  (Here's all the fabric together.)  I can't decide.

Have I mentioned I need to wear this June 22? ;)

Edit:  I would do green guards and orange sleeves.  I do not want to steal Jen Thompson's color scheme.  :)

Lindsey, I tried to go to the Land's End Outlet this weekend, but Main Street (being the street it's on) is all torn up, and I would have had to park four blocks away and walk. I'll be able to make it later this week and get better parking on a non-Saturday.

No worries if you can't make it. :)

Lovely kirtle! I know it's a hassle to do but I love the look of side lacing.

Thanks!

Most of my frustration is thatI have yet to figure out that nasty waist wrinkle. It's been on every single one of my side lacing bodices so far!
