Yes, it takes me a long time to work on a project, especially a complex project like this. But I regret nothing: it is such fun! It took me about three weeks to select the colors for lady Marie and the fashion style and a pattern of her dress. Thank God for the Internet! So many great resources that were not available before, even a few years back!
Since it is XII century fashion, she actually needs two dresses: "kirtle" is under-dress that is tastefully shows under a "bliaut" over-dress that was fashioned from heavier cloth.
I just finished the embroidery on Marie's kirtle and finally put the two together. Here are the results!
Also, if you pay attention, you can see that Marie is not alone in her wanderings in the Broceliande Forest… Who may it be wandering with her?
