There is so much wrong here. Kirtles are generally more form fitting, laced up the front or the back of the dress. These dresses were made in a hurry, taking less than a day or two to complete. The seams aren’t finished on either dress. But they were and still are works in progress. The orange-y brown dress has a stripe around the bottom of the skirt (to hide a rip that happened during the rush of creating a feast at an event), and the front now has lacing holes! All hand done! Go me!
Only took me 3 or 4 years.
The turban like head thingy is extremely useful. Keeps my hair out of my face and out of feast food! Very important. Also, very stylish for the medieval woman.
I give credit to the photographer, Ed DuMont, who always seems to be able to make me look good when he takes my picture – one of the few that do!
