Lace up leather boots
I've been working diligently trying to finish her costume. I wanted to make her a pair of leather lace up boots. I looked at period Renaissance Shoes and thought a leather turn shoe may be fitting but I ended up hand sewing a leather high top lace up boot, something like a moccasin. This was quite the task.
I finished her chemise and gave her bloomers and a purple silk skirt. She may also receive a petticoat.

I've always longed to sew a corset for one of my dolls. I sewed her a corset style bodice with inserted stays. The vest is lined in silk and the loop holes are hand sewn. This took some time to get the fitting right. She's come a long way and now there is just a few more details to work out and she will be finished.
