Garb

Donut Hat Improvement – pt. 1

A shot time prior to the Fall Coronation here in the East Kingdom, I made a houppelande to wear for the occasion. It’s not my best work but I think it’s a good piece of work for a first attempt. The belt, collar, and lining and hat were all made from remnants and small pieces. … Continue reading »

Eura Underdress – The Family Look Pt. 4

I’ve finally gotten around to putting my daughter’s dress together. I apologize in advance for slightly blurry pictures. I took them with my phone and for whatever the reason I couldn’t get a clear shot when I was putting the thing together. All of these are thumbnails. You can click on them to see them … Continue reading »

Eura Underdress – The Family Look pt. 3

So it’s been a while since I began this run of posts but I’m finally getting around to posting my daughter’s dress and it’s progress. The fist part and sometimes the hardest part (for me) is picking out material. In this particular case I was looking for an underdress piece that was roughly 34 inches … Continue reading »

Improving Garb – Jorvik Hood Pt. 1

Recently I have joined a Facebook group with the intention of improving my Norse garb. I have plenty of garb  but I realized that I don’t have a complete  set of anything. Even though my persona is late 12th century/ early 13th century French my most complete set is my Norse garb.  It is also probably … Continue reading »

Viking Hood Part II

So I began working on a Viking hood prior to Pennsic, the assumption being that it would get a bunch of use because everyone was going on the assumption that it was going to be a wet and generally miserable Pennsic in terms of weather. It ended up being one of the driest Pennsic’s in thirty … Continue reading »

Viking Hood À La Skjoldehamn

As Pennsic is upon us and I’m digging through my wardrobe I begin to realize that I don’t have one basic item that most people should have in their inventory: a hood. Now there are all kinds of hoods throughout our time period but I have been on this kick lately of actually trying to … Continue reading »

Eura Underdress – The Family Look pt. 2

The continuation of the Eura underdress journey. (See here for previous entry.) After much deliberation and pulling the dress off and on again I decided to take it all apart. I was right when I had assumed that the dress would wind up far to large for myself.  As a reminder I used  the pattern … Continue reading »

Eura Underdress – The Family Look pt. 1

So for a long time I’ve been hearing about the Eura dress. In the SCA it’s worn often times with a Viking apron dress besides the as a medieval Finnish outfit. The other great perk about this particular pattern is that there are no underarm gussets for kids to rip through. I’ll talk about that … Continue reading »

Needless to say that I now need make more garb and alter the few things that I can, in order to have … Continue reading »

Post Baby Garb

So I know it’s been a while since my last post but I think you can expect many more soon. After having my second baby, a healthy girl, none of my garb fits. Not only that but I need to remake or fix a lot of the stuff I have. It’s a bit aggravating but … Continue reading »
