Construction is done, seams are finished except for the seam/armhole finish on one side. It is not as long on her as I’d hoped (it just hits the floor right now) but it is PLENTY big around – so much so that I’m going to be pleating in the tops of the gores; I think it’ll be an interesting (and plausible?) detail on the garment.

She is super-excited about the fact that we are going to MATCH!

Kids’ clothing is such a balancing act between accuracy and pragmatism. I have no problem with her wearing things that are miles too big or really getting quite short… but I do wonder how kids’ clothes were managed in the 13th century. Of course, there probably weren’t so many only children running around in 1281 so there was always someone to inherit from or pass on to.
