They're a total bitch to stitch. And don't even get me started on the linen dress with the lacing holes and everything. Ugh.
On the other hand, I recieved my new books on medieval fashion today. One of the two is on English fashion of the 14th century and I'm thrilled. Lots and lots of photos of illuminated manuscripts. Yeah. Definite nerd.
