That's awesome! There must be a bigger market out there than I thought. I would love to do SCA, but honestly my degrees are taking up too much time. Maybe someday...

Yeah, unfortunately we don't get out to many events - both my husband and I are back in school (he's finishing up his bachelor's degree, I'm in law school), so that takes priority over fun stuff.  Oh well. Smiley

I was thinking of joining SCA years and years ago, but never had the money and then forgot about it until, taadaa!, joining etsy!  So, now I have less money than back then, but I am thinking if I do join, perhaps I will learn skills and then can make things to sell using those skills, like you are.  Once one joins, is it pretty expensive to start doing projects?  I mean, some of your items (beautiful, btw!) and others I have seen look like they'd have special boning and other doodads relative to their era.
I love your avvie, btw!  Great movie!

Those are lovely! If I may ask, what are your fave patterns for doublets? I kinda like the ones from Reconstructing History. If I could convince my boyfriend that they are decent semi-formal wear (mmmm, and maybe casual wear, too!), I'd so totally make him one Cheesy Frankly, doublets are HAWT! Especially the ones with detachable slit sleeves, or detachable inverted-pleat sleeves (or whatever they are actually called; they have a "slit" with a different colour fabric behind the slit that's attached to the sleeve, it's not the shirt's sleeve). Sean Connery in his Spanish doublet makes me swoon!

Oh ya, and what movie is that in your avatar??? It looks sooo familiar, but I can't remember!!!

***Pounce from a fellow IWG member***

I thought that doublet looked familiar as I scroll down the "Recent With Pictures" list.  If my husband was less *ahem* town fool and more dashing rogue, I'd be buying.

Sorry to hear you're not playing with us - hopefully we'll have your learned presence with us once again, sometime in the future. Smiley 

 Grin  That's ok silverstah. I'm not really sure about how OT threads can go here so I was afraid to say too much. I know Windmaster's well. I'm currently in South Downs, Meridies but used to play with your group back in the day at an even called Giant's Dance in TN which was my home group. 

I don't know as I'll be playing SCA anytime soon as I now have 2 school age children and my job has become even more demanding.

I've made more than a handful of 15-16 c Italians in my day. I just love the richness of the fabrics.

I'm glad to have met up with you silverstah and I look forward to seeing more of your lovely handwork in the future!

Gorgeous - I love the fabrics and choice of trims.  All beautiful.  And it's interesting to learn about the SCA - thanks!  Smiley

I think the avvie is from the movie Treasure Planet.

Sorry about your job situation, that really sucks but it's given you the chance to make these amazing items.

They're really fabulous, perhaps it's your calling?!  Grin

the fabric on the first one is sooooo pretty! These are really nice.
