Slacker! :twisted: :lol: (joke!!!!)

Interesting shape for the boning channels... I was led to believe that for Tudor, only completely vertical channels were used, with shaping only... well, later, with the inevitable development of stays?

That is the boning pattern for what TT calls the Dorothea bodies.

TT only shows vertical boning but to be honest when I have used bones I have set them at a slant which helps compensate for my substantial front without needing to wear a pair of bodies. The most important thing is the fit and that it looks right unless you are making a reproduction or trying to imitate surviving garments.

So well done Izabella - when do we get to see the final outfit?

the final outfit- will be some time I suppose. am almost finished with the gown, just need to line the thing and find a nice colour velvet to bind the hem. then only the false sleeves and the hood. plus, possibly a partlet.
since I handstitch everything it will tak a bit of time. and since I am now awash with commissions, it will be some time before I can do things for myself. still, I will wear the full kit in May, for Griff's event in London:-)

will post the gown mini diary as soon as I finish with it:-)

:P I'm getting a bit overexcited I guess.

And Lidi, your dress will be lovely. At least you have the skills to make it yourself; I wish I did!

re: boning :lol:

I did take the patern form TT - not for the bodies though- the boning chanels they used for interlining Henrician Lady's kirtle is the same- slanted. Thrue enough, the working class kirtle boning is vertical. wonder why the discrepancies... must be a reason for it , surely?
no matter, the boning doesnt show- and feels as comfortable as the vertical one i have in my bodies.

Hmm, the innuendo is strong with this one, sorry, but this does make an entertaining read. Can't beat a good bit of slanted boning eh?
