Another Quora member asked to see my other costumes. I’ll just stick up those photos and will add more in depth info on them in the future.
1400’s German peasant. I need to work on that corset. I have to fix the straps and the gap in the middle of my chest. All hand sewn.
This was my second costume and I need to redo so many things on it. Alas.
At least I got the head covering correct.
I cheated on the pirate costume…I had to have it ready kinda quick. I found the coat in a garage sale and altered it to the way I wanted (cut the collar and sleeve cuffs). Then I added the trim and buttons. This was all done by hand.
I hand sewed the vest and the jabot (lace at the throat) from scratch. The white shirt (that you can barely see) is just a button up white dress shirt but I added the lace on the cuffs and collar. Eventually I want to hand sew a period correct shirt. I’ll get to it!
The hat was an easy sew up from thick dark felt, trim along the edge (with milliners wire), add a pin to the side and done.
