These are again pics from this Summer and late Spring. My Geeky side belongs a household in the Society for Creative Anachronism http://www.sca.org/
As such, they're always in need of costumes or garb and since it's mostly boys who'd rather be practicing their fencing and western martial arts, I'm usually left dressing them.
So here's some stuff I made this year and never got around to posting here. All pictures are from the same event...
This first pic is from our camp, I made everything picture. The shirts are broadcloth poofy shirts, the green pants on the guy in the middle have strips of wine coloured trim and I hand beaded glass pearls and gold seed beads along them. There is a matching doublet to go with it but for the life of me I can't find a picture of it worn!
The brown doublet was made from super cheap chocolate brown satin and the sleeves have gold embroidery striping them that I did using a fancy sewing machine stitch.
My gold dress is actually the Tudor kirtle to my Tudor gown. So I'm just being a hussy running around in my underwear!
This next picture is another shot of the "boys" on their way to the fencing tourney. The three on the left are all of my work. They're all pretty much the same in style as far as doublets, shirts and pants go.
Actually the pants are the exact same pair of pants with different lengths of elastic in the waistband to change the size. lol. I HATE making pants. This is my way of cheating.
The black jacket in the middle is not usually part of our garb collection. It's an ancient relic of costuming days gone by for us, I have no idea why we brought it out that day.
This is what the boys wore for their fencing outfits for the tourney that day. The clothes are intentionally baggy here because the boys are wearing body armour underneath for safety. And obviously, I have a thing for costuming with black fabric.
And this picture is from a different event where we were vendoring but it shows the green over gown atop my kirtle and chemise from the first picture. I should be wearing a panel over the front to cover the lacing, but I got lazy and didn't want to pin it on.
