A quick shot of my new jerkin. It's all bunched up cause I had been messing with the buttons. (Which are amazing thistle buttons!!!) So it got pulled up, and I didn't realize it. I'll put up a better pic later.
Well, thank you! It's better in real life, I promise. It really is kinda discombobulated in the picture from where I've been fussing with it all evening.
I don't mind the teasing. I'm used to it, everyone in my group teases me a lot.
Finally got to show it to my don. He was jealous. HA! I win! It's completely reversible, too. Except for the buttons. Which are these awesome pewter thistles, I thought they were appropriate for the piece. I got lucky finding them.
lol it's ok. it looks fine really. i understand the fussing thing. i was ALWAYS doing that with my first doublet too. completely reversable eh? i like that idea. i'll have to try doing it sometime. more looks with less garb. clever. might be hard for propor tudor though.
That's amazing. I made my first gown my hand. After 80+ eyeletts, I went out and bought a sewing machine. I can't do that for my stuff. I'd get sick of it before it was finished. I admire you for your patience, and all the work that must have gone into making your garb, my god, I can't imagine!
yup, it is a pain in the ass and it takes me forever to do anything because i hate sewing. im working on some tudor shorts with pleating to make them puffy and a sexond colour fabric sewn between the depression in the box pleats. dear god i've been working on them since like.... september.
