So I haven’t posted to this, my SCA clothing journal, in two years. I do have a somewhat valid excuse. In two years we’ve moved, my business is getting re-started, I’m working part time, and we have just finished the basement (sewing room). It’s been a crazy couple of years.
Beyond that I am pregnant again and now I actually have to worry about maternity and garb. *Sigh* There are a number of ways to approach it and there are some handy articles out there on how to modify current garb and what type of garb is best for the pregnant modern day medievalist. I’ve collected the pages that I plan on using on my current project: a rework on a light blue linen tunic dress that was pretty badly put together. I’m planning on turning it into a surcoat that I can wear to Fall Crown here in the E.K. Not sure how it’s going to turn out but I do have a lot of work to do on it.
The good news is that with the sewing room put together I can now work and not have to worry about cleaning up every evening. I also have added a dress form to my collection of sewing stuff which makes fitting myself much easier!
For now that’s pretty much it. I’ll post pictures of my work in progress in a little bit…after I figure out what to do with it! medievalist.
