Red Linen Kirtle (March, 2008)

Here you can see my red linen short sleeved kirtle.  I originally made this gown so that I would have something comfortable and easy that I could come off the rapier field and change into quickly for court while I was baroness.  This kirtle fit the bill perfectly.  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.  In fact I loved it so much I have one cut out in green linen that’s just waiting to get sewn together!
