I wanted to go to an SCA event in January, so I needed to sew a medieval outfit.
Heres what I made.

( ps, first attempt at anything like this, enormous fun!)

Linen Shift, 100% percent linen, hand sewn to a traditional pattern, embroidery added after the event, its probably not entirely accurate but I love it.







Wool surcoat, dyed brown, not very successfully, hand sewn and edged with red cotton fabric ( miles and miles)





White linen kirtle, handsewn, lace holes hand edged. Mostly lined. ( I love this on  Grin)





Linen apron, I wanted to help in the kitchen, handsewn.



teeny tiny stitches



Cotton coif with couching embroidery ( my first attempt)



veil, embroidered after event



small bag, handmade, on veil



Suede shoes and a second pair in progress.



Napkin work in progress for next event, I need one when eating!



Made it this far? Congrats!

Obviously I would prefer to post action pics, but I am here alone.

WOW that's all i can say.

I have one upperdress and it took me so freaking long i didn't start on the underdress jet (i have the upperdress for 3 years now)

I love the things you made, if not 100% correct, i can't spot the flaws. And i love the embroidery.

thanks so much for the lovely comments!
I have never liked handsewing to be honest, but its been addictive since starting these. I started on the 18th of December and had till the 6th of Jan to get finished, so I sewed everywhere!
When I was in the car, in breaks at work, visiting people, at night in front of the tv, literally everywhere!

I started the embroidery on Monday and love it to bits  Grin

thanks so much! The embroidery is loosely based on a vine with leaves and flowers.
Your comments have made my day!

It is stunning you should enter it in the A&S competition. I am sure you can document it and the Embroidery being different
 then a copy would help with scope by adding creativity.

Thanks Straberryh  Grin
I never thought of entering it in a competition, I just needed something to wear. Grin
One day I hope to travel to your country and see the SCA on a large scale!
( this was my first event, but not my last!)
