First challenge from Sew Fortnightly, headed up by The Dreamstress!
The Challenge: #1: Bi/Tri/Quadri/Quin/Sex/
Septi/Octo/Nona/Centennial – due 14 Jan. Sew something from __13, whether it be 1913, 1613, or 13BC
Fabric: Linen, cotton.
Pattern: Eyeballed it! I liked this shape best out of all the extant pockets I looked at and sketched it out on paper first.
Year: 1713, or so I'm going to claim.
Notions: Cotton tape, thread
How historically accurate is it? They definitely had pockets at this time but I was unable to pin down any quilted ones before 1740, so that feature is guesswork on my part, although they do exist within the 18th century (also the quilting design is not handsewn, I just had matelasse remnant). Everything else though is, I think, correct and handsewn.
Hours to complete: Probably only three but I stretched it out over days.
First worn: Not yet! Just finished it Sunday!
Total cost: $0, everything came from my stash!
