Gores & Gussets at Grand TUA

Setting the gusset in the sample

In my previous post, I mentioned attending the SCA Grand TUA in Regina at the end of October. One of the classes I took was on gussets and gores. I had been hoping just a bit that there would be some secret technique to avoid hand-stitching the very tip to get the insets started… but nothing unfortunately.

We did both an underarm gusset, and a skirt gore in the class – completed all by hand (albeit in a very small scale!).

Other classes

I also took classes on calligraphy, embroidery, silent heraldry, and spices. Additionally I took five classes with the Tudor Tailors, which I’ll hopefully blog about later…
