Re: [Authentic_SCA] Re: Elizabethan underwear/clothing in general
I've uploaded a picture of a piece of crewel-work fabric I bought
recently. I think it should be about enough for a pair of sleeves -
reasonable, or too gaudy?
Postitively smashing! I love it! Perfect for sleeves! Wonderful! Use it! Please! Love it!

How did you get on with the button?
I finally managed to get a baby silver pomander, supposed to be a
16th century replica. It's smaller than I thought it was, but very
sweet. Unfortunately the retailer has deleted the pics off the
auction before I got a chance to save them.
