Legs and Linings

Dave's leggings came in the mail from today, and he tried them on as soon as he got home from work.
I was eager to see how the codpiece worked, as it's not something a lady gets to inspect close-up very often, if at all. It's neat; kinda like a single-cup brassiere where a fella can stash his bits.
The quality of these tights is remarkable, and I love that they are machine washable and can be tossed in the dryer. 100% cotton-- can't beat that, and Dave says they are exceedingly comfortable.
I still wonder what's to be done with all that shirttail. It'd make his butt awfully lumpy, tucked in.

Work on the sottana continues. I want to get it and Dave's doublet to about the same stage in assembly, so I can get each step done at the same time.
Unfortunately for Dave, I find making my sottana much more interesting than working on his doublet -- maybe because I know there's a good deal more sewing involved and I'm hoping to have these done for the Midsummer Ren Fest in three weeks.

..I don't think they're gonna be ready. But let's hope for the best, shall we?
