Finally starting. With the shift. The style I am making is what Kass talks about in her article on Netherlandish. This means that I want to make the shift a double layer of linen in the top part.
Trying to decide neck style. I'm seeing both scoop necklines and high semi-ruffled neckline. What I THINK i'll do is make the shift scoop, and the partlet higher. So I can go back and forth between the two.
I am trying to keep in mind functionality, I want this to be late period tourney garb.
I'm nearly out of white linen, and can't afford more for... at least three months, so I don't want to mess up. I'm a bit afraid to be honest.
