I am working on my first complete set of garb, with the intention of wearing it to an event in less than two weeks time. I am also making garb for my husband and my son. You could say time is of the essence. However I have chosen now to practice my hand sewn rolled hems! Yesterday I hemmed most of the raw edges on my pellote, and it looks amazing! I told myself I would only do that one piece as a practice before I hem my veil (which OBVIOUSLY requires hand sewn rolled hems, LOL). Now I can't help thinking I could hem it all by hand and it would be SO much more authentic.
Let's not forget that tomorrow my new loom arrives and I want to make "some" trim. I will need at least 20 yards, but I figure I will only do the most important bits before Sir Edward's Memorial Tournament. The rest can be added later, right? Oh, and I will need a pouch to carry my goodies, something simple, well simple with fringe, and embroidery, and beads! I'm in trouble, but it is so much fun!
