I have a dress!!

I have a dress!!!

Thanks to Aginoth and Mrs A.

It's a rich red colour (allowed because it was a colour made with berry dye) and has a laced bodice. And I also have a shift (necessary as I am very allergic to wool) and I invested in a spoon (vital for meals!)

I need to take the shift in a touch - it's long enough but there's about a mile too much material in the body and arms - that'll be a job for Cornwall.

Now I have a proper fitting dress I need Aginoth to punch some new holes in my belt......

.....and I am too tall for stock medieval dresses, so I may need to tack on an extra couple of inches onto my dress as I become more affluent (stay in the Company longer), but for a dirty peasant (first season), it doesn't matter too much.....

and I desperately need to lose some weight........ :-((

Holidays tomorrow!!!!
