Drawers plan

I think my first project will be a pair of drawers, while I am planning a pair of pants to go with this outfit I do like a layer between me and my outer clothing so I think a pair of linen drawers should work. Nothing fancy just plain linen flat felled with red silk thread. If I have time and inspiration I could embroider the cuff

I'm thinking something like this, most likely shorter in the leg

based on a pattern from Janet Arnold's pattern of fashion 4 pg 106

IRCC 2014

Realm of Venus is holding their costume challenge and once again I am going to enter. This year's outfit will be very different form what I have entered in the past and while it may not be something that will place me in the top three it will be something I hope to get my sewing mojo going again.

My inspiration for the underwear layer

And my inspiration for the main outfit
I've never made a ladies doublet so that could be challenging

I hope to post my plans within the next week then jump into work on the 1st
