I’m helping Madame O make her own 14th century gown, using the research and drafting I did for my own 1369 dress.
Madame O is quite a different shape to me, but she isn’t that different in size, so I made some minor adaptions to the pattern based on knowing the difference in our shape, and she’s made a toile to check the fit. We’ll cut the proper garment from that.
Felicity, as a good sewing cat, is also helping out.
So far she’s been lending a paw as a pattern weight:
Felicity adores Madame O, so she’s very glad to be of assistance!
What a well-behaved pattern weight!
The world is a better place for having a Felicity in it!
She is so well behaved! My two cats like to ‘attack’ the fabric when I lay it on the floor to cut. I usually have to lock them out of the room!
Such a responsible sewing kitty
That’s quite some pattern weight! Easily the cutest one in existence, too, I think. 🙂
(And a quiet ta-da that I’m not being locked out as spam again. It does it every now and then; I guess it’s something to do with changing IP addresses so it can’t be helped.)
