Building an 18th century kit
I keep going back farther in time with each new impression I put together. My husband has joined the 33rd British group and I am putting together a camp follower impression. I am going to sew the underclothes first to get in the hang of hand sewing again. So far I have only made a pair of linen pockets from the Kannik's Korner Pattern KK-6001, view A. I used cross-stitch directions from Sharon Ann Burston to embroider my initials on one pocket and my husband's on the other. I have a JP Ryan stays pattern and Kannik's Korner shift and bedgown patterns coming in the mail this week, so I'll have plenty to keep me busy this summer.
