My first attempts at medieval attire for us were initiated in July 2021, and then COMPLETELY STALLED due to circumstances beyond my control. It is now June 2022 and I am going to try again. This summer there are no classes, no trips, and no visitors planned. Sewing seasons begins NOW.

First: DREAMS

I have long enjoyed making and wearing clothes that reproduce the feeling of an era, but this will be my first attempt at archaeologically and historically accurate garments. Note: Due to time and energy constraints and the beginnings of arthritis in my hands I will do most of the sewing on a machine – not period “accurate” but let’s face it: if they’d had machines in 800 CE they’d have used them!

Here are some of the inspirations

Second: PLANS and PATTERNS

Third: PROCESS (links to individual Project posts)

(None yet)

Last: THOUGHTS AND ADVICE

(Still waiting for thoughts…)

If this post ends here, the project is still being worked on with no discernible progress since the last update.
