Let's have a parti!

Parti-colored kirtle, that is! Check this out:

'The Mi-Parti or Parti-colour kirtle
This is the kirtle or gown which is one colour on one side and another on the opposing side. The concept of multi-coloured clothing was always popular with musicians and entertainers who liked bright clothing and at the height of the 14th century this style also became popular with noble ladies.'

Suddenly I have a way to use up those linen bits I was complaining were only good for shirts and linings! Time to get out the sketch pad and see what I can come up with.
