Only... As you can see the fit wasn't amazing and I quickly decided I didn't like it all that much.
Now, her original ever day kit was (dare I admit it?) getting a little tight. So I decided to kill two birds with one stone and make new every day kit by re making the dress to fit me better.
I made a new chemise in the italian renaissance style and a new bodice out of the original green suede.
I adore the sleeves on the chemise! So pretty! The cuffs are a simple tie that I gathered the sleeve fabric into. They fasten by tying a bow.
To make up for the fact I no longer wear her arm bracers I beaded her holy symbol and added the patch to the bodice. It's also trimmed with a pretty rose ribbon and laced with the original brown dresses cording.
Many thanks to my wonderful photographer Sam, for helping me squeeze these photos in before I went off larping! The chemise, in case you are wondering has had two launderings and is nearly back to pristine white...
