Green Linen Kirtle

Here you can see my long promised green linen short sleeved kirtle.  I originally made this gown because I loved my red linen kirtle so much I needed a second one.  So in the summer of 2008 I cut it out with the plan of finishing it for Pennsic.  Well it never got finished and sadly it ended up sitting on the shelf until the summer of 2010 when I decided I simply couldn’t let it sit any longer.  Like my red kirtle it’s made using my gothic fitted gown pattern and is completely self supporting. It is machine sewn but completely hand finshed.  The skirt is cut full and hangs wonderfully and since the gown is made of linen it’s extremely cool and comfortable.
