It wouldn't be Friday without an FO to share. Sadly, my lack of knitting progress has been well documented over the past two weeks, so quite clearly I haven't magicked up a finished yarn-related project for you today.
Instead, let us fly back through the mists of time, so I can share with you a couple of old sewing projects I did a few years ago. They were both for Jamie's character when we were playing the Borgia-inspired noble house at LRP.
This tunic was the first thing I ever made using an actual pattern. It's pretty basic, granted, but I was so proud of myself when I finished! It was also a bit of a rush job. Burgundy velvet, lined with dark brown and edged with dark blue. Some of my seams are a little wonky but you can't really tell once Jamie's wearing it!
This was attempt two, done with more care and more time to spend on it. It's a bit more complicated. In fact, it was reading this post over at All Fingers and Thumbs earlier on today that reminded me of this project, as it also features peplums! Once again, as I'm sure you can tell, it's wonky as anything. Especially the collar. But, I'm still quite proud of it. I've had a hunt throught the old photos, and I can't seem to find anything that shows him actually wearing any of this kit though!
Looking back at the kit I've made previously is making me want to make more. Only two weeks to go till the next event now, though, so I probably won't have time. I've got other things to sort out in that time, including an enormous leather banner (more on that, later in the week).
I shall leave you with the best picture I can find from the wedding last weekend, showing off my sweet pea shawl with its beady dangly things. For some reason, I was quite accidentally camera-shy!
Head on over to Tami's for actual yarn FOs!
