"Center: Inspired by period artwork, my own version of a 16th century German "KampFrau" gown and hemd. They and the head scarf are all 100% linen and the garments are made by yours truly. The Hemd or chemise is smocked and stitched by hand! "

This is the first full garment I've made all myself, I'm glad it seems to be doing so well. I would welcome some critiques/ reviews:)

Lovely. The sleeves and yoke (chemise?) look like more intricate work.

Thank you Patricia the neck line is gathered with a technique called "smocking" and I did it all by hand... It's about 2 1/2 yards gathered into around 14 inches!

Very nicely done! Did you write a dress diary or blog about making this dress?
