While making the drab green-grey wool underdress, I noticed how well the drab worked with the dark green underdress I made a while back. I decided to use the remaining fabric leftover from the underdess to make an apron dress too. (I don’t plan on wearing them together, instead I’ll wear the drab grey-green with the dark green.)
I was on a bit of a green streak, in the same time period working on:
- green linen under dress
- grey-green drab wool under dress
- dark green wool apron dress
- and this grey-green drab wool apron dress.
This isn’t totally coincidence, I still have a few more green fabrics to make up in honour of being Montengarde’s (my SCA Barony) Emerald Rose. However, my current Baron & Baroness favour blue/red colour combinations, which also works well with my existing wardrobe which is heavily blue/red (with a bunch of grey and black too, along with a few other colours…)
I won’t re-hash how I made the apron dress, check out the photos and read any of my previous apron dress posts for more information.
The apron dress is trimmed in a gorgeous crisp green silk that I bought in Finland in November. This is the same fabric I trimmed the dark green wool apron dress with. Since I won’t ever wear the two together, I didn’t mind using the same silk to trim them both.
