Some thoughts.

I could start my morning by saying that I still have not heard back from the appliance repair service and their quote.

I could continue by saying that we have found another washer at a decent price, and that we may be going out tonight and ordering it.

I could finish by announcing that at this point my Pennsic laundry has been growing legs and is currently threatening to run away with the circus.

But I shall not bother you with such trivialities. Instead, I will tell you that I wore my Roman outfits several times during Pennsic, and that I enjoyed them very much. Not only they are flattering, cool, and comfortable, but you can also mix and match the pieces like there is no tomorrow.

Moreover, I also made the startling discovery that the mamillare or "boob wrap," is incredibly easy to wrap, comfortable to wear, and it can double as a turban on 15th Century garb.

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, Roman underwear can be multi-purpose, and I cannot think of very many instances in which a woman can wear her bra on her head and get complimented for it.

And with this, I shall leave you to ponder about the mysteries of life, the universe, and the multiple uses of period underwear.

Belfebe out.

Hola! The instructions and dimensions can be found in the webpage of the fabulous siobhan_sca. Here is the link.

I did a couple of things differently though. Instead of making it 10-12 inches, I made it 14. This after a conversation with siobhan_sca. The second thing is that she used two strips of 45" linen, whereas I used 60" linen. I figured that a little bit longer would not hurt.

Finally, I used the 3.5 oz linen from fabrics-store.com. It took a bit of experimenting, but when I got it right, it was really comfy. Let me know how it goes!

"Underwear on our heads" sounds like the perfect motto for a banner! Soooo perfect!

Now if we can just get someone to translate it into Latin or Medieval French...

Underwear on your head is good. As long as you don't also stick pencils up your nose and go "Wibble, wibble".

We've got Eddie trained to do that, without the pencils, natch. :-D

I'm sure if you wore your bra on your head, you'd get complimented!

It's certainly high fashion for toddlers. ;-D

You looked very spiff in your Roman, btw!

Thank you! I really enjoyed wearing it! :-)

You obviously aren't hanging out with the right folks if you think getting a compliment for wearing your bra on your head is unexpected.... GRIN

Yeah. I need to do something about that. ;-)
