Steampunk Project 3: A Pair of Knitted Waistcoats

So while my striped fabric is nicely swooshing around in the washer I started poking at another project. Inspired by a lovely double breasted sweater vest from the early 1900's and taking ideas from a lovely sweater recycling project I went shopping last weekend and picked up a couple of sweaters at the Salvation Army store. I'm gonna see what I can do with these...

I finished the Butter Dress!

I've been re-working a kirtle I made several years ago into a dress I would actually be willing to wear in public. The kirtle was only good for an under-layer, if that, but I undid several of my earlier bad decisions (like removing a forepart panel made of entirely unsuitable material) made some better choices (adding banding in a complementary material was one of them) and I am now the proud owner of a casual lightweight gown I won't be mortified to be seen in.

That's four dresses and counting. Pennsic here I come!
