I know what I'm gonna do, you guys! I'm going to take the bodice off the kirtle, use the leftover strip to make another panel and a waistband, and make it into a skirt. I'm still going to do the embroidery on the bottom, and it's going to be very pretty.

If you want a little peek at the embroidery I'm planning, you can see it on the border of this tapestry. The little 5-petal roses with the trailing vines, worked in a single shade of light blue wool with a straight border on top and below. I can always embellish it later if I want to.

So glad I came up with a plan! The idea of having to stash it and start on something new was a bit depressing.
