Muslin 1710 Shirt - Hope Purple is okay for a guy...

I've been commissioned to make a gentleman's costume from 1710-1720. It's very specific and I'm working on the pattern drafting and muslin fitting pieces.

The 'third hand' comes in handy for hand sewing work. 

It's just a brick, with a rice bag on top, covered in wool. :^) Doubles as a pin cushion. 

Hand sewn shirt hems. Wrong side view.

The final version of this shirt will be made from beached linen. Not blue cotton. But I like to just use cheap-what-I-have-stuff for muslins. 

Done! It's a little clown-ish with the blue/purpleness, but, it was great practice!

Till next week!
