The shirt has not been going well, although the embroidery has been.

I had planned to wear it to an SCA even this morning. It's now four and a half hours later and I'm realizing that it needs underarm gussets, else I can't even put it on.

Thankfully I have enough of the fabric left to do it. I can't get more of the fabric, I figured out that I bought this about 18 years ago, and am only now getting around to using it.

Well, it's been a long time since I've posted to this.

I'm starting a new shirt in a heavy taupe colored linen. Apparently this, as well as orange, is a color I like. I also found some wool, some wierd tapestry material, and some garment weight wool, all in the same color.

Once again, I've forgotten to cut the interfacing for the collar at the same time as the pattern pieces, no big hardship, but must fiddle with it a bit more than I'd normally wish.

I'm planning out some embroidery of a vine around the collar and cuff, but it might get abbreviated to a single leaf shape. Will think on it tomorrow.
