Thus far..

Postby lidimy » Fri Feb 08, 2008 5:44 pm

Since everyone else has got their own 'oooh look at meee' thread, I thought I'd join in and let you see how my kirtle is coming on.

It's inside out because it was being fitted (the seam allowances haven't been trimmed which is why there are flappy bits around the edges!) The sleeves aren't yet attached.

I'm wearing it over my Tudor shift (haven't made a 15th C one yet)

Lidi :D

Carfull. or all the young men will be scoring you on a scale of 0-10

or worse still 0-1

:wink:

Anyway, it looks fine to my untutored eye. I might have to follow suit and take a picture of the late 17th / early 18thC sailors kit I'm trying to pull together.

About 3 on that picture, it makes me looks fat and I'm not wearing any makeup.... and my hair is behind my shoulders too.

BTW the floppy bit at the top isn't a mis fitting - it's where I pinned it up the front wrong - when done properly the top does meet! :lol:

Why go and post a picture that you said you looked fat in?!

But you don't look fat. Girls these days :roll:

Ya lost me!

Eh, I'm actually under going a make up Cold Turkey period at the minute.

Went to college the other day without makeup for the first time. I have to wean myself or I'll feel utterly lacking in confidence at my first event!

So I'm getting there! :lol:

There is no point in wearing make-up. I wore some last weekend and I slapped a bit of clear (because I couldn't be bothered with black) mascara on before I went round my friends the week before that. I RARELY wear make-up and I don't really care what I look like, I don't even use soap, but my skin is still fine (ok, so I get a few spots here and there, but who doesn't?!) The only stuff I stick on my face daily is moisturiser and lip balm.

*and breathe*

Thanks for the comment on the colour, I was concerned that it might be too drab for me! But it looks good with my black hood and with some nice pin on sleeves it'll look like quite an outfit (I hope!)

Lid :D

Certainly looks that way

Lidimy you are about twenty to thirty pounds offf looking fat. The kirtle is looking fine, quite often its chaos up until the last fitting and it all comes together.

Compliments on your kirtle. Looks really good. I have to stick to just making much simpler kirtles for Cass :?

I think lidi means she looks larger than normal due to the sticking out seams, not that she thinks she is fat.


I prefer Badger ales, but hobgoblin is alright.

So sue me already.

Your old man has taste.

But adnams is by far the most superior beer on the planet.

In the fore is Innis and Gunn, and yes, correctly identified, HobGoblin. I was wondering when you'd notice...

Zac, yes that is what I meant! Though that pic does make me look a tad top heavy even so :?
