In the Society for Creative Anachronism, my name is Herrin Kathalyn Nimet. I enjoy the research and garments of the late 15th/early 16th Century German clothing, but I have been known to sew anything from 6th C. Byzantine to 14th C. Gothic fitted dresses also.

I attempt to sew other stuff to from modern day patterns, but that's been a challenge. Hopefully by brainstorming on this journal, I can figure them out with some measure of success. Modern patterns are just not my forté!

Please enjoy!

So I'm not happy with how the sleeves turned out. In my opinion, epic fail. But now I have a better knowledge of the construction theory and can adapt the process into future dresses. I might get another 2 yards of the same fabric and re-do the sleeves at a later date. For now I am deciding on whether to make some quickie short sleeves or deal with the one I made... I'm just not happy, but I may be the only one who notices (unless I bring it up).

I dunno.

I plan to get some pictures this weekend and share the finished dress. (The dress won't have the crescent appliques for this weekend, so another update when those are attached will be made.)

Off to hand sewing...
