It does look pretty similar to the Saidi dress ( I had to look that up  Grin) so good luck with both projects!
I have finished the sleeves and am pretty happy with the result.
I am now planning a muff, lined with rabbit fur and a cloak to wear with it.

Heres an updated pic.

22  Red Bliaut in Costumes: Completed Projects by ScrappySue on: March 17, 2012 02:48:36 AM
Hey, I found some beautiful fabric, and decided it must be a bliaut, a lovely red cotton silk, light as air.
Then I found a braid last week and have been sewing furiously so I could wear it to the Medieval festival today. I had to admit defeat and it is lacking both sleeves and side lacing, but on the whole, I am very happy with it so far  Grin
All handsewn. Side and front and rear gores make it lovely and full, which you can't really see lol. Cheesy

23  Felt bag workshop, my new bag to be! in Felting: Completed Projects by ScrappySue on: March 10, 2012 03:36:50 AM
Today I attended a felt workshop, it was great to see how people can take the same basic shape and make completely differant bags!
So here is my attempt, still damp and waiting for the handle to be attached.

24  Medieval garb, Pic Heavy in Costumes: Completed Projects by ScrappySue on: January 13, 2012 03:42:36 AM
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.

I'm pretty used to going in bare feet, and have added a lining so think I will be ok. As far as stockings go, I am hoping to avoid them as we have been having a bit of a heatwave here, not 40 degrees (c) yet but close to, high 30s.
Got my nephew to take a pic of me today trying everything on, bag still needs a string and I am going to make a scarf(?) for my head.
I have a handwoven belt I added, made by traditional methods from Croatia, that I finally have a use for, not just hanging in my room  Grin
I am wanting to make another kirtle/shift, and bought some beautiful, $25 a metre linen, which I am putting off cutting up, because I dont want to stuff it up!

love what you have done.  Grin

I have been working away steadily and have made a linen shift/kirtle, a woolen surcoat, a cap, today I finished an apron, most of a small bag, and attempted a basic pair of shoes.
I have an event to attend on the 6,7,8th of January so needed a whole outfit, gad I hope its ok!
Heat could be a problem and ideally I should have something a bit fancier to wear also, but figured for my first attempts I would go with fairly basic stuff.
Dont have pics of everything, Ill see what I have, brb.

shoes, made from a suede jacket

shift/kirtle quilters linen, just under 5 metres of fabric, pattern from a pattern generator

a close up of stitching, I hemmed the entire thing then stitched it together, everything I have made is hand sewn.

a better image of shift, showing gores at sides, still haven't completed the neckline.

Feedback welcome, but be gentle please, I am a bit scared about wearing whole thing, when so many people are so talented.

well three days of hand sewing later, I have a finished shift, (exept neckline), but everything else sewn and hemmed.
Tired but happy.

wow, I was only at work for a while I thought!
Love the boxy pouch a lot, I think I need one of those!
And the card holder, lovely!
More batik on a mug rug, lovely!
I had forgotten how much I liked batik.
The pot holder and bag are just delish, the owl fabric is fabulous!
And that four sided bag, now thats clever, I love the side with the banner best!

Ok tada!
its summer in Australia so you could be excused for thinking hot weather, beaches, kangaroos etc right? wrong!
It has rained so much today, Im wondering if we slipped back into winter.
So when I arrived home from lets say, a "difficult" day at work, how excited was I to see a soggy package sitting on top of my letterbox? So excited I didnt mind that the water was so deep, my shoes where submerged to rescue it from the rain!

Heres the poor soggy, folded in half package, abandoned on my letterbox in the rain

Squeee! Heres my loot!
Luckily only the fabric items got wet.
Look at the awesome fabrics, so very red white and blue, and silver and vintagey!

Flipped over to show the nautical theme underneath, to match my pirate yearnings

Actually, probably a better pic

But wait, theres another package!
Scrapbook supplies!

attempt at capturing all the goodies in one shot!

Thanks so much mini_mum!
I am warming the coaster as I type with a steaming cup of coffee Grin

Just made three four to wrap the oven mitts I made, how nice to wrap a home made gift in a home made wrap!

Thanks again for the awesome idea!
