More medieval fashion

Thankfully the trapped nerve is getting better but slight complications have left me with numb fingers and a lot of pain in my right arm so have only managed a completely pathetic twenty stitches on a Christmas ornament in the whole of this week so there is literally nothing to see here.

Am trying to learn to sew left handed and  the good news is that I have managed to do a huge amount of work prep for the next few weeks so if normal service is restored finger wise I will have time to sew!

I have lots of things that I have not had chance to show you so while productivity is low will keep you amused with some other lovely stuff.

At our last show at Caldicot we once again did a fashion talk and thanks to various photographer friends have some great shots to share with you. Kerry has been doing so much sewing recently, as well as working on her wedding gown and she had not one but two new outfits that weekend.

Her new peasant dress is made from some fabric that I bought cheaply many years ago and decided I didn’t like and donated it to her in the hope that she could dye it or find some other use and she created this gorgeous dress from it.

Her new veil and wimple looks stunning as well.

We did a talk on fashion in various different periods so she brought her new 15th century dress and henin head dress as well. Thanks to Silke for this photo of her and Ellie sitting on the castle walls.

Here they are with Lady Louisa in her fur trimmed sideless surcoat and beautiful ruffled veil as well.

I love this picture by Silke as well of everyone from the Falchion’s group lined up waiting to go off to the battle.I love my crazy medieval friends and am missing everyone now that the season has ended!

We have a sewing weekend coming up where Kerry and I will be working on more wedding outfits, very exciting!

Hope that you are all having a nice weekend, I was teaching today and my group were very sweet about my incapacity and told me to rest up tomorrow which is exactly what I intend to do. Fingers crossed, (in a very gentle way!), I may be able to spend some time in the craft room 🙂

Take care and thanks for visiting.

  1. I do hope you are soon well enough to get back to sewing. Looking at your lovely pics has inspired me to get out my sewing and do some work on my new shift later today.

  2. Oh you poor thing with your poorly arm ! Hope it feels better very soon. I think maybe we should all practice using our other hand for embroidery ..I might have a go later on and see what happens ! 🙂 Love seeing all your beautiful medieval costumes .
