Button hole stitching.

I have been button hole stitching the edges to my camica before I pleat and smock it. It has taken me a lot longer than I thought.

This is my camica spread across my 6 foot sofa with my helper Tucker laying in the as of now un-smocked neck line.
The entire hem of the neck line is button hole stitches as are the cuffs. For every inch of finished cuff or neck line I need 5 inches of fabric to smock.
This is my practice/ learning piece for smocking, it was 45″ wide and it finished at 9″

Greetings, I am Lady Anjuili Foljambe and I call the Barony of Stonemarche my home. I have been in the SCA for a very long time. I love making garb, I have made most of my own and my family’s for the entire time I have been in the SCA. I also was keeper of Stonemarche’s Gold Key for many years. I have been doing more research and making more period correct garb in the last 8 or 9 years than I have in the past. I have participated in the Birka Fashion show for a few years now. This will be my second garb challenge. I and a few friends competed in golden seamstress in 2018 and had a blast.
