Two weeks ago I posted about trying to de-stash some of my fabrics with an online “auction”. Tomorrow is the ‘closing’ of the auction of a bunch of wools, wool blends, and other coating/jacket fabrics.
Napped coating fabric
Grey-blue warp, teal weft wool
Red and black houndstooth fabric
There are more fabrics in my auction than I have pictured here… these are just a few of them.🙂
To check out what I have for ‘auction’ please visit my Facebook page!
Complete “celebration” Italian outfit including the padded roll hat, teal figured velvet overdress, and green silk underdress with sleeves
The Challenge: December – Special Occasion: make something for a special event or a specific occasion, or that would have been worn to special event or specific occasion historically.
This project was started in the summer when it was announced that my SCA friend Caterina would be elevated to the Order of the Laurel (the highest honour and responsibility in Arts & Sciences). I finished the final touches on this costume RIGHT before her elevation on November 5th, making it timed perfectly for the December HSM challenge.
