So far I have:
- Done all the major sewing on the new goller (above). I'm hand sewing it, and since the wool is a dense flannel, it's not a fast process. All that is left is to whip stitch the opening (where I turned it right-side out), then to stitch all along the outside edge to straighten it up. Oh, and to add the frog clasp.
- Decided to use the gold linen for the sleeves. Since the goller has two shades of brown, the third shade of the brown I could have used was too much variation. I'm still not sold on the gold, but I wanted them anyway, and it will be better than the brown.
- Created a working prototype of the wulsthaube (above) using some scrap cotton. I've got a few issues to fix before I do it in linen, but if push comes to shove, this will suffice. I've got to do some fitting adjustments, mainly. I also need to make the roll longer. If I don't get the sheer veil done, my old rectangular veil will work (that's what I'm wearing above).
So far, so good!
P.S. Here's a thought: if I do fabric buttons and loops along the two sides of the opening, the goller will be completely reversable. Hmmmm.
