I'm in Love

I did the 2nd mockup today, and it fits perfectly! I so love the lines of the 17th c. Of course, now comes the scary part - cutting into my fabric!

And I've decided to change the closures. I had bought some metal clasps at Joanns, but they just don't look right. So I think I'm going to do hooks and eyes, with decorative pearls or buttons over them. And I also had an idea for the trim. I have some old sage green lace, which I think is actually hem lace (from the bias tape area of Joanns), and it looks really pretty on my mockup.

I'm also in love with the Robin Hood series BBC put out a couple years ago. I just finished watching season one on netflix!
