Tomorrow is the start of the Bath Lit Fest and we got asked to go along. We're playing survivors of the battle of Dyrham and need Dark Ages Kit. Nothing I have is that suitable, but I do love the look and I had some trim that was the right sort of thing, so I begged some fabric of my mum, ordered army blankets from the internet and away I went.
|I think it's kind of fun!|
The under dress is cotton voile (for authenticity it should be linen, but oh well). It has the same shape as the over dress but slightly narrower arm holes and the sleeves narrow and obviously sleeves and bottom hem are longer than the over dress.
It's belted by a long strip of left over army blanket. Tomorrow when I wear it I plan to hang my larp dagger off the belt, but I need to find the scabbard first. If I get time this evening then I also plan to make a small pouch to hang of my belt which will contain my phone and keys etc.
Sorry I didn't post on Monday but I spent most of last week suffering toothache and spring cleaning so I didn't have a lot to show you. Not hugely sure if I'll have much next week either. I am working on things but they are large and complicated and therefore unlikely to be done in a week. So I must beg indulgence for my absences!
