Pink Kirtle


We all have old projects lurking in the back of the closet, things we made when the scissors were still fresh and sharp and we knew just enough about sewing to be dangerous.

They are given away. They no longer fit and gather dust as we move on to new projects, better fabrics.

This was one of the first gowns I made, the bodice was too big, and over time the fabric stretched. It lingered in the back of the closet for a few years before I took it out, tried it on and decided to fix it.

The results can be found here in the Costume section.
