Journal

My brooch arrived (Posted 5th September 2012)

The pin is quite small on it and probably won't deal with the thick wool on my cloak, so I'll get a sneaky safety pin to secure it and have the brooch decoratively over it. I was expecting that anyway, given the thickness of the wool. I am still happy with it.

This was tonight! (Posted 3rd September 2012)

We made a jerkin. Took a little trial and error with the terrifying leather. Laura did the sewing because she has the leather needles and I wasn't putting this through someone else's machine in case it broke it. It definitely didn't sound happy. I still have to add some details to it. Buttons, mainly. Laura is never allowed to suggest we buy an entire cow again. And I'm definitely not allowed to agree. Yeah, that's _the shirt_ under it. Calm down, I know it's fabulous. My hand-on-waist thing looks megagay because I'm holding it in place across my torso (since no buttons~).

This was kinda recent~ (Posted 3rd September 2012)

I made a cloak and the pictures really don't show anything at all. There's a split in it because my arm will be useless otherwise. It's made of the heaviest wool in the world and lined with the taffeta Laura bullied me into buying. I still have like a mile of taffeta left. There's a bit that wraps round and I have ordered a brooch to hold it inb4 it is awful.

Not gonna backdate this stuff because I don't remember when I did it (Posted 3rd September 2012)

So this is the shirt. I learned how to ruffle for this project. It's pretty fabulous, everyone will just have to deal with that.
