Personal Things

Some stuff I’ve made for my consorts and I:

The still-to-be-completed chemise with stem-stich embroidery in green silk.

I started making a cuff in a mixture of Bayeaux stitch and Klosterstich (not because it was entirely appropriate, but because I wanted to compare the speed of the stitches). It was going to be for Jattz's gambeson but I didn't have the time to finish it... so I ended up cutting the swan panel out and sewing it to a sleeve of the gambeson as my favour.

My finished Spanish wide-brimmed hat for a 16th century outfit for my black livery dress (as Liveryman to King Gabriel II). I cast the buttons from pewter, having carved a 3-piece soapstone mould. The symbol on it is the mill-rind (the primary charge of House Burbage).
