    I'm trying to make a simple muslin shift as worn by Elizabethan ladies under their gowns. It will form the informal part of Arbella's wardrobe. The formal part i.e. the gown, may well be beyond my capabilities Bibarina!

    Arbella's Costume Update

    I have now completed the first stage of Arbella's Elizabethan costume which is a simple muslin shift also known as a chemise and a bodice. Dina's mannequin has proved invaluable, although the European sculpt must be slightly smaller than the Asian sculpt. I am quite relieved with how it has turned out given I'm a complete novice at dressmaking. So happy I discovered fray check! I designed the costume to make it easy to dress and undress. I have also worked on her face-up, improving her brows and the definition in her eyes.
