In fact, I believe that I am making veritable progress.
On other news, Alle Psallite practice was a lot of fun last night, although we did miss thanathe and weebaby. Sitientes proved once more to be our bane, but I think that we are getting closer.
Or so we hope.
I have also been working on the brown doublet, and I am down to making handmade buttonholes. The good news is, I think that I am getting the hang of making them by applying the buttonhole stitch before cutting open the slit. They definitely look a lot better and lie flatter. The only problem is, I don't think that this technique will work that well on quilted garments, but I won't know till I try it.
And speaking of the brown doublet. A doubt assaulted me last night. I love wearing codpieces and I own already a pair of venetians with one (the infamous "squeaky" codpiece . . . with bells). Nevertheless, it occurs to me that although I have seen codpieces in slops, paned slops, trunkhose, etc., I don't remember whether or not I have seen them on venetians.
I need to go back to books and images to figure this one out.
It would be a pity if I found that venetians are not made with codpieces. I love venetians and I love codpieces.
Oh, well. It would at least give me the excuse for making slops.
And any excuse is a good excuse.
And now, back to our regularly scheduled program.
The Most Boring Document in the WorldTM requires my undivided attention and must not be neglected.
