Ok So here is how far I am.
as always all the pictures can be seen at
As one can see the linen inside part is done.
Disappointingly it did not quite turn out the way I wanted. I know what I would have had to do different to get the look that I wanted.
This happens to me every time I make a Codpiece. You think I would remember it, but nooooooo. The next time I pattern out a codpiece (it would help if I didn't always loos the patterns for my codpieces) I do the same dame mistake I always make and think "hay isn't this the part I mess up and need to do different...........??????................. neaaaaaa thats later on"
And then happens what happens every time I think the codpiece is not soooo bad and actually it looks pretty cool like that and well they did have this shape........... bla bla bla............
So this is wat It will look like with loots of slashings.
