Baragoni and some accessories

Almost done:-)

Baragoni are finished, pretty basic construction; there's the outer fabric and the lining and I simply randomly tacked the outer fabric to the lining till it looked right. So its not identical from side to side, but I think it turned out OK.

Here's a picture of one baragoni after it was tacked, and one still untacked, just for reference as to the volume of material used (about 25-30 inches long by the width of fabric).

I intend to make lucet ties to tie the sleeves on, and am about halfway done with those, for now the sleeves are just pinned in place. I also whipped up a sash and the partlet, the partlet is finished in case I need to wear the dress, but I do intend to go back and do the embroidery when I get a chance.

Still need to figure out something for the camicia, that will be next for this I think, but probably won't get done until february due to business projects that need to be done this month.

Did I mention I got a new sewing space? Pretty excited about that, no more sharing with the dining room table and having everything strewn about or inaccessible. Plus I have a private entrance to receive customers and students.
