In Search of Pre-Made Body Linens

I'm working on a kit for my wife, and am admittedly (and unashamedly) looking for a shortcut. I need a smock/chemise/whatever in linen with a non-gathered neckline. Preferably a natural linen, not bleached. Don't really care if it's scooped or a keyhole, and I don't care if it's tastefully machine-s...

Re: A Week in Scotland

Re: 2019 S.W.O.R.D. Game

The nocking point may not be perfectly historical, but years ago here on the forum we were discussing this and I was much faster because I could use the heel of my palm to locate the string and the nocking point to keep the arrow perpendicular, all without having to take my eyes off the target like ...
