I’m finally back! At our local demo this last weekend, I found out that people I don’t know actually read my blog! And notice when I haven’t updated in awhile. I’ve been very busy, making and doing so many things. I just haven’t taken the time to come here and show you everything–so here I am again! My wool Frankendress is completely finished, and it’s looking pretty good.
I’ve also made a pouch with pouchlets in green leather (salvaged from a Goodwill skirt), which you can see me wearing with the dress. My apprentice belt completes the look. I will take some more detailed pictures of the finished pouch soon. I will be making another pouch using a lovely soft thin leather (1-2 oz, probably). I made braies for my husband, who has a 13th century German persona. Using Mistress Aenor’s braies pattern, I used about 1 1/2 yards of mid-weight white linen:
The ends of the legs, which are left partially open at the bottom of each leg seam, are tied up as in this picture:
I made my first pair of shoes using a pattern I made using a sock and duct tape, the Stepping Through Time book, and my Laurel and her husband (also a Laurel!):
Finally, you wouldn’t believe the geek-gasm I had when I learned about this stuff:
I have completed the drawers, completely hand-sewn over a lovely relaxing weekend at Sebec Lake with friends. I will post pictures of them soon.
The bra is my next project–now I get to learn sprang, which is thought to have been between the two cups.
