I have created the most ugly reticule ever! I am so unhappy with it. But now it’s finished. Started working on it last spring. Found it again tonight while cleaning, just to realize I only need stitch on a braid. I believe it is never to be used for reenactment. But perhaps it can be used for storage. At least I got some new knowledge from this project.
Finally i found time to make some of the things I love the most. Sewing..
Remember that hat from H&M? I’ts finished now!
I decorated it with a feather, velvet fabric and a beaded flower. I absolutely love it! Hopefully it will fit together with the planned flapper dress.
This was also a part of the Historical Sew Fortnightly – Challenge #9 – Flora and Fauna
Please go check out this site. There is a lot of gold hidden there, if you look for it.
I found this the last time i looked:
The Sct. Brigitta pattern has been found, and tested. So I will start on the real one tomorrow. Here is some pictures of the finished sample. Hope you enjoy. Hopefully will I be able to post a Tutorial on the Sct. Brigitta Pattern soon. 😀
Hmm.. okay. My sample of the brigitta cap didn’t go that well. It was to small, and i couldn’t seem to tie it the right way. Thank god I didn’t you the expensive fabric!
Oh yeah! I also got my fabric. The wool is not what I imagine, but I can use it for a cape instead.
I just bought the fabric I will use for my Nun Project. I have decided to be a Novice – this means I’m going through the admission process to be a Nun. Thought it would fit better with my age. Most nuns went through a years long Novice training. So will be wearing a white Vail.
I can’t wait to show you guys the fabric!
I just stumbled over a pattern in my book “Nordbomønstre” (the English title is “Medieval Garment Reconstructed – Norse Clothing Patterns”). I think I will use it as the main dress. I like the idea about the pockets allot. There will also be allot of room to alterations, if needed. I will scan the pages with patterns later. You can fine more information about the book under “Books”.
