Dit weekend niets te doen? De herfstvakantie mooi afsluiten of starten? Kom dan naar @deslagomgrolle Grolle!! Een fantastisch mooi evenement met meer dan 1500 reenactors!! Mooi, gezellig, indrukwekkend! Vanavond een heerlijke wandeling gemaakt langs alle kampementen.
This is the Tudor Tailor waistcoat I made for cold Faire weather—repurposed from a heinous 1980s/1990s woman’s overcoat. In retrospect I should have taken a picture of the before and after. The only issue with this plan is the sleeves turned out to be slightly narrower than the original pattern because I just used the coat sleeves as is (after rehemming and overall shortening). The trim is velvet ribbon, both flat and made into piping. I learned a lot with this project and am already looking forward to making a linen one for warmer weather that will be even better. On this particular day it may have reached 60 degrees hence all the extra (and hopefully HA—I had to punt a bit) layers. Overall super comfy and my top half at least was warm, an extra layer of wool socks will be on the list for next time. 😊
Worn over my navy and burgundy TT wool kirtle, coif from TT, hat by Truly Charmichael, scarf from Target, gloves vintage, and mitts from Kitten Crochet. Photo by Patty Smith. #elizabethan#tudor#tudortailor#reenactor#renaissancefaire#renaissancefestival#everythingisbetterinwool
Um excuse me colonial reenactors. You are breaking character! I was first appalled that you used the bathroom. Indoor plumbing was not as nice (if available) at that time and now you are eating food like someone from the 21st century. So shocking!!! #colonial#colonialreenactor#reenactor#reenactors
