Yeah. I've been in 17th and 18th century groups that do "I've been reenacting since before you were born. I'm not changing anything now!" And they look awful. Unfortunately I find that many of the new people follow their example because it's easier. You don't have to "reinvent the wheel". And of course most sutlers aren't up to speed enough for you to buy stuff from them. Hey, we still have sutlers selling "English Bodices" that we all know were invented by Simplicity in 1976!

I'm not surprised Marta's gown isn't lined. I've never lined any of mine. That's what bothers me about Robin's method -- she says it uses only period-available techniques and then she insists on doing something that we know they didn't do with everything single garment.

I'm not trying to knock anyone off their horse. I'm just out here, trying to make sure people don't get too far away from the truth. =)

And now... breakfast!
