The Elizabethan project is progressing, the foresleeves, smock and coif are now done, and only the gown and a hood to go.
The smock is a mid-calf length under-dress of white cotton lawn with extra long, billowing sleeves and a ribbon tie at the cuff.
The foresleeves are made of the same orange damask as the kirtle forepart, with three slits along the seam, decorated with beads. They have hook and eye closures at the wrist and are laced through eyelets to the kirtle via a pair of plain black cotton top sleeves.
The coif is a cap to be worn under the hood. It is made of the same cotton lawn as the smock and fastened with ribbon ties.
The whole project can be seen at http://makesmemine.blogspot.co.uk/p/elizabethan-costume.html.
