Anyway, I have decided to start posting some picks of some fabrics I am going to use.
Not the best pic in the world, but alas. The peachy fabric with the muted gold(the best way I can describe the color) is for my bliaut I hope to get made. The chocolate brown ribbon is for the belt, which I may or may not do and the embroidery thread is for exactly that. The white is a silk veil I found tucked back that I had ordered from Dharma Trading Co. a while back. The purple stack is for my 4 year old step daughter a little bliaut, with the yellow being the turn back for the sleeve and the pink and darker purple for embroidery. I know a child of her age probably wouldn't wear such a dress, but I don't care. I am making this mostly for my pleasure.
Maybe I can get started on them sometime in the near future. But with the possibility of a new job and holding down two of them for a while, it may not happen for quite some time. Or it will be my 'I'm bored at my night job, so I'll hand sew' project.
Here are some closer pics.
As always, any thoughts, comments, suggestions are welcomed. Thanks!
Why is it that things never seem to go according to plan? That seems doubly true for garb. Of course, mundania has been a little wonky and crazy so I shouldn't be surprised.
