Yesterday hiwver, I attached the skirt by had while listening to an audio book and today I tried it on.
Ignore the shift, I just threw the nearest linen shift on and the neckline is both to high and too narrow.
And I will use a longer ribbon. And have sleeves, obviously. I have made those tonight, but not attached them yet. I tried it with the velvet spencer too, I think I will mostly wear it with something over it, my immediate plan is an oper robe from printed cotton.
But first sleeves.
