hoops nearly finished

No real photos for this update but the tape ties are in, and the yoke and side openings have been tidied. I can now wash the things gently without any worry. There are pen marks and large pin pricks to wash out.

I also got progress on my Jubon for my Princess of Cleves ensemble. The braid is now all sewn on the body and sleeves, though I may unpick the lower sides and put the waist braid in pieces as well. It looks amazing on. I will be putting padding in like the extant garments of c1600 have as there are so few good internal photos of women’s doublets from an earlier time.
