After the camicia , the second layer I did start but not finish is a pair of drawer.I did wish to make the drawer extraordinary with full of embroidery but time as played against me .I realize with what I want to do it will take at least 40h only for the embroidery part .I really like my design and prefer to make a basic thing for the challenge and complete the real thing later.
The following picture is found in the book Moda a Firenze , one of my other inspiration can be found in the book Pattern of fashion 4 by Janet Arnold.
My final choice in progress
Here is a picture of the progress
A look on what other costumer have done bring this conclusion: most women don't make the triangular piece.You can argue it's more appropriate for men but still example in museum have it.I also assume it is more comfortable when you do horse riding but women probably do horse riding in amazon style.Anyway , to respect authenticity as much as possible , I made the triangle piece.
Fact to know about the drawer:
Fabric: Linen from William Booth draper
Thread: blue silk
Embroidery: by hand
Time invest in it: 15h
