These are all things I've been wanting to tackle for a long time:
|Flemish Working Class|
|Early 16th C. Florentine|
For the smaller yardage in blue (my favorite color, by the way), I'm thinking either a zimarra or sleeveless ropa, embellished with applique and couching. Another option would be an outer gown to go over my chocolate linen kirtle to convert it into a Flemish working class dress.
For the purple wool, I may try my hand at a saxon gown, or an earlier Florentine style dress. I'm almost thinking this shade of purple is a bit too vibrant though. I think I'd rather it were dialed down a bit into a nice plum. I might try dying it if I don't chicken out. There should be plenty left over to do something for my Sven as well.
Thoughts? Opinions? Other ideas I haven't thought of?
Let's not forget I also have eight yards of evergreen and ultramarine linen getting bored in my stash. Maybe I can combine the wool and linen to something awesome. I won't be starting on this any time before the New Year, so that gives me plenty of time to stew and plan.
