So from the top, the veil. The figures of the Royal Portal of the Chartres Cathedral show several variations:
So I opted for veiled. I chose a lightweight silk, rounded the corners, and hemmed it with silk thread using a rolled hem stitch. This is a stitch I had never used before, so it took a bit of getting used to, but how cool! Run a few stitches, pull it tight, it rolls up, and all the stitches disappear! Kinda reminds me of an old math cartoon with two profs working on a huge blackboard full of a mathematical proof with the next step in the proof being “And then magic happens”.
I have also started on the chemise, and created the pattern for my hose, but more on that tomorrow.
