Ruffs!

I have no idea what everyone else achieved at sewing Sunday, though all seemed very industrious. I, however, set my new ruff! That is, I spent several hours with hair curlers, setting my upside-down ruff into even figure-eights. It's now wearable again, though it will look better once I've flipped it, and spent an hour or so touching up the top, and making sure the pleats are as even as possible, and nicely shaped. (For those who have not seen it, this ruff is somewhat wider than my shoulders, and made of a strip of linen about seven metres long).

 

I believe that others patterned bodices, corsets, partlets, learned fingerloop braiding, hemmed shirts, refined lasts for shoes, and did many other exciting and skillful things.
