New Jerkin by ineedsleepmhaha New Jerkin by ineedsleepmhaha
Yes, I fail at titles. However, the very pretty jerkin will make up for it.

This is my newest piece, the green you see is leather, the yellow is satin. The brown doublet under it is a beautiful brown velvet, also lined in satin. I made the green jerkin, I bought the doublet from the same lady who had given me that awesome hat. It's the first piece I've purchased for my garb collection. Not bad for a first, I'd say.

Anyway, back to the piece, the slits are sewn together every 2 inches or so, and where they meet I have hand sewn pearl beads. The picadills took 10 million years to finish, and this should end up as a doublet before too much longer.

My fiance took the picture, not me. Yes, I have his permission to use it.

Well, for the moment, we work on Liechtenauer and Ringeck for the long sword, and Capo Ferro and Giganti for the rapier

Wow! That's awesome! Not many people in my area study a specific master, so it's hard to get anything like that here. I have a DiGrasse book, and someone else has one on Spanish style, but my teacher was self taught. He's awesome, just it would be great to get some period technique every once in a while. You're very fortunate.

hum, in fact, my teacher in rapier is more familiar with XVIIIth century masters. so, we are a bunch in the club who decided to have a look at XVIIth century treaties to learn by ourselves

Thank you! Yeah, picadills (sp?) are tons of fun. and they won't fray cause they're leather. Though if you're worried about fraying i'd go with wool instead. Leather is SUPER hard to cut, and you can't mess up without it being really bloody obvious, so I had to re-do a bunch of stuff so it would look ok. Still waiting to see your new piece, btw... (yes, I will bug you about it till it's posted)

ok ok, i'll post pictures of it tonight after i'm done work. sheesh.
i like working with leather. and fur. they make my tudor happy. it's so hard to be tudor on a budget. fraying isn't really something i'm worried about. though wool is the kind of thing that i'd use more for outer layers because of it's warmth. you know, living up in a cold climate and all.

Sweet! Yeah, what I do for fur is watch our second-hand shops. I got a fur coat for under a dollar. I was giddy for the rest of the day. I'm so jealous of your weather. I can't handle anything but linen here in the summer. I swear we were over 100'F last summer. And the humidity gets so bad I have a hard time breathing. I turn into a big baby in the summer. And noone here can stand to fight in anything below 50'F.

mmmm all a bunch of whimps. november 2009 the principality of avacal investiture was a CAMPING event, and it was like... -25 celcius or something outside. we camped inside a horse arena but still. no heating or insulation just protection from the wind, was pretty fricken cold. we fight in 40 above celcius sometimes depending on the event and schedualing.
we have a shop here that sells wholesale rabbit pelts in propure, argent and sable. and they are big pelts. and i get them tax free because we have a business account there. that's where i'm getting mine. less hastle to deal with the stitching etc of the former jacket it was. still under a dollar is pretty impressive.

Ok, this is my jealous face. -_- we don't have anything like that here. well, we have a place to buy rabbit pelts, but they're all tiny. and too expensive. blarg. finally warming up here. huzzah!

lol, well they are only 10 or 15$ canadian here, so, i would be more than willing to work out an arrangement of some sorts should you find yourself in the need for rabbit pelts in the future. after all, even at say 15$ tax free plus shipping and handling, it's still cheaper than say 20-25$ american for one plus taxes. i'm guessing by the way. next time i go down and buy some, i'll take photos of them and i'll send them to you and we can maybe work out something.

haha, yeah, I'll probably take you up on that whenever I use up the coats. If you could take a pic of them so I can tell what size they are, that would be awesome. thank you, btw!

May I ask exactly what a jerkin is and where it comes from?
Reply
:iconineedsleepmhaha:
ineedsleepmhaha Featured By Owner Jan 17, 2011  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
The jerkin is the green vest-like thing I am wearing on top of the other layers. They are from renaissance Europe. Shakespearean/Elizabethan time period. They go over the doublet.

I did! And I saw it, it's awesome. Sent it to Ursus.

He said " Please tell her I'm very impressed and jealous of what she's learned and the evident superlative instruction of her teachers,"

Yeah, he was totally impressed. Though I'm not sure I know what 'superlative' means. I'll have to look it up. :P
