So - Astrid's kit again :)
This is her short sleeved chemise. It's made from blue linen off cuts and is slightly unusual for me in that it's straight (I normally make an a-line chemise for movement). To combat the lack of movement it's got slits in it to just above my knees.
As you can see here it's tied with a drawstring and can be worn on or off shoulder.
I wasn't entirely sure what the weather was going to be like for The Gathering, so I made a long sleeved version as well! This one is blue poly cotton, a bit longed and a lot baggier.
The sleeves are elasticated at the cuff, and this chemise is cut on an a-line shape for freedom of movement.
I also wasn't sure how warm I was going to be, and whilst I didn't want to make another cloak for myself (I have 4 different larp coats already...) I did want something to wrap around me for warmth. I debated knitting some kind of shawl, but lets face it - my knitting skills are not up to that kind of challenge yet!
So there we go - Astrid's kit in all it's glory.
Next week I think I'll show you a fun waistcoat I made as a Christmas present and hopefully have some exciting news to show/share with you all!
