It started in all innocence by watching YouTuber—costume historian and a maker two years prior to these events I’m about to note down. I took a few pages of notes as sewing actual garments was science fiction to me back then. A year and a ton of videos later I attempted my first mock-up as I set aside slightly old and frail duvet covers for further re-use.

I’ve spent several hot days with Charles (Hecklinger) in an attempt to create a mock-up for a thing. One does not simply start with the Keystone system, right? So I enjoyed the process tremendously, but results are rather questionable.
