Things I learned doing this project.
Sewing for growing children is harder than I thought it would be. Little-Bug grew 1.5 inches during the course of this project, so I’m glad it still fits enough to be worn. I am even more impressed with 16th century tailor’s abilities in creating garments for children before they grew out of them! I was excited to try out hand sewn doublet construction and theories on the Maria de Medici baragoni ( puffed sleeves).
