That's quick, isabella!   You are so creative in all that you do.

It gakes me a few hours to make a chemise. That because in some cases, I vary the decorative stitching, add lace, etc. But then, it also depends on the length as well.

For the more Elizabethan shirts and Chemises/Shifts, 6+ hours. Making the figure 8 ruffs for the neck and wrist bands take time to prepare, decorative stitching, serging my seam edges, etc.  before I put everything together.

I admit, what I do tends to be very plain.  The half hour was with a machine; it's 8 hours by hand.   I've done a couple more decorative ones but I get frustrated at doing embroidery and all my embroidery tends to go hide in the bad corner for months at a time.   ;-)

I'd love to be able to serge things - I destroyed my serger 24 hours after I got it.   I should get it taken it to be fixed...along with the other two sewing machines I have lying about....

Lady Kathleen, what is your favorite decorative stitch to do?  What machine do you use?

I have a Janome Memory Craft 4900 that I bought brand new in 2006, isabella. There zre so many different decorative stitches, I like to combine 2 to make a trim design for shirts and chemises. I like to play around with colors like a color for the top thread like a red or gold embroidery thread and a black bobbin.

My latest!



It came out more Florentine than Venetian but, eh, whatever.  It fits!  I've  updated the pattern now for a more Venetian fit.  The dress is out of that Joann's linen/rayon blend because I fell in love with the color.  The trim is a wool trim in dark purple and blue.  I might make pink sleeves just to make it ultra girly.

Lol!  Yes!   I'm actually wearing jeans, a thermal, and a short sleeved jacket right now....and working on a summer dress for Church tomorrow.  ;-)

I *think* I almost have enough garb for Pennsic this year.  Two weeks of living medievally and my need for a new outfit everyday means I need way too many dresses.  Thank goodness a bunch of them can live out in the trailer or I'd never find room in the house.

Me wearing my new Elizabethan gown at our Minnesota Renaissance Festival Friends 2015 Spring Feast.



With my friend, Dr. Deb Suppes in her newly made Tudor gown from the Andrea Shewe Simplicity pattern. Deb did an awesome job and pictures does not do her gown justice.

Absolutely stunning, Lady Kathleen!  I love everything about this.

Thank you for the kind words, Wee Wench.

This gown ensemble took me 90 hours in all with the hand sewing of the 6mm pearl clusters, pleating of the overskirt, etc. The Bodice and sleeves were hand drafted. I used no commercial pattern.

The Italian Bonnet is a circle for the brim and crown with a heavy Buckram for the brim. The Chemise is a  pattern that I also drafted. Except for the jewelry, everything I am wearing, I made. Even the Corset, Farthingale, and Bloomers.

:-D  They didn't.   However, Royalty got to ride around in nice covered wagons or in a litter.  I don't.   The dust and mud at Pennsic is legendary.  I prefer my modern showers (I have a shower tent) and clean clothing.
