Sunflower Twill

I still have one aunt that hasn’t received a set of handwoven towels from me yet, so she’s next on the list.

I’m calling these sunflower twill towels, since the colours remind me of sunflowers.  They are a natural coloured cotton, with accents of dark green, yellow, and black.

Yellow Kirtle In Progress

For the kirtle bodice, I’ll be using four layers of linen. The outer fabric and lining, and the inner layers with the boning.
