*squeak!*


I know how it stays up.

The supporter.  I know how it stays up without weird construction - making it just like it is in the book.*

I know what the ties are for. 

*glee*

*PoF4.  And yes, I'm going to tell you guys, but not until I've taken a bunch of pictures.

Didn't I always say that it always works if you do it like they did it? Let's face it: they just plain knew more about this than we do. =)

Congrats on the epiphany. Doesn't it rock?

Just one set - one long-ish tie on each side.

Drat. Eventually I will find out why there's 2 sets of ties in that picture.... :)
I look forward to seeing pictures of your 12th Night outfit when it's all done and put together. The Paint sketches today were awesome!

I have pics downloaded at

We got to handle them as well!
They also did a demo on dressing an Elizabeth man. That was probably one of the most informative things of the whole colloquium!

Yeah, I just love when that happens...

A few years ago, I was trying to get a shoe pattern, based on an outline drawing of the shoe upper published in an archaeological journal. There was one section along where the upper met the sole that was uneven and, I reasoned, was probably the result of a loss of some sort (decay, a tear while worn, damage in the ground, etc). There was no real way to tell since the article didn't elaborate and there was not photo, just an outline.

The shoe had this odd back-of-the ankle tongue that was just a disaster to get to stand up. After putzing around with it endlessly, I FINALLY got it to work! I gleefully took apart my pattern, I found to my horror that to make the shoe work right, I had eliminated the exact same sliver of shoe upper...

*facepalm*
