Finished Wool Shortgown

Yep, finished! It's been finished since before I went to West Kingdom's Collegium a couple of weekends ago, but I've been sitting on the photos until now, mostly to focus on house cleaning.

The photos I have also includes another little tool I used to mark out the pattern, both cutting and sewing lines, since the pattern was made without a seam allowance. It is called a Double Tracing Wheel, and I think it was made by Clover (my package was different than what I see online). I bought mine a few years ago during a trip to L.A.'s Garment District, and only now gave it a whirl. I'll be using it more often.

The gown is seen worn over my red damask kirtle, which it was not designed to cover, so there are parts that do peek through. But it really shows the difference between the two garments which I rather like. I may have to make a red linen kirtle just for the contrast with this gown.

I'm not sure what else I can write up about this project, that wasn't covered already. So I'll just give you the link to the progress photos, which include those I took after a day at WK's Collegium, taken at the hotel. If you have any questions, feel free to ask.
