1560's Portraits

"(Lady Malina with Malina Opatowiecka) A Lengberg bra! It differs a bit from the original piece - I had to adjust it to my low-cut neckline dresses but the general idea is preserved. It has a tight bodice tied at the side and two 2-piece cups. I used quite thick hand made linen so the skirt is sewn without any ruffles or folds to keep a smooth line of the dresses worn with it. It is a lot of work to make it fitted and comfortable but I tell you – it is worth the effort!"

Elizabethan hand sewing seams. Amazingly strong. Finish edges with a running stitch, then whip stitch the edges together no more than a couple mm. Gently pull the stitched pieces apart so the whip stitch seam lies flat.
