Good Morning everyone! Today’s post is about how to make a simple pair of joined hose!
Wanna make stockings for your sexy 14-16th century kit? Wanna be lazy and not have to draft or drape them? YEAH, ME TOO! So join me and wrap your legs in duct-tape, it’s the best!
I joined the Order of the Laurel this past May, and made a new 1590’s Venetian dress for the occasion!
The farthingale is completely done! Wooo! Here’s the final video showing how I put the skirt together:
Here’s part two for the farthingale! It shows how I constructed the bodice :D Just like in part one, here’s a transcript of the video for those that would prefer non-moving dress diaries!
I have never made or even worn a hoop skirt, but after seeing how underwhelming my skirt volume was in pictures, I decided that it was time to poof things up!
