Larva in the Middle Ages – Market dates (updated)

This year I will be attending some renaissance faires with Larva again. Last year I was travelling through all of Germany. That was very interesting, but unfortunately it didn't really pay off.

Authentic late medieval dress and undergarment

Last summer I got an introduction to (more or less) authentic medieval tailoring. And during the christmas holidays I had some time to start the first project: A simple late medieval (late 14th century) dress and undergarment.

Old Crafts: Spinning yarn by hand

Two weeks ago on Saturday I attended a course for spinning yarn by hand. This means spinning and twisting threads from animal or plant fibers.

The Witcher: Yennefer of Vengerberg

And another very fine project with Silver Wolfie. Actually Silver Wolfie is specialized on cosplay as a model and for thus we were looking for characters together, whose clothes would also fit my portfolio. On Yennefer of Vengerberg from the excellent The Witcher books and computer games we agreed almost immediately.

WIP: Embroidered elven wedding gown

I already wrote that I've some more projects planned with Silver Wolfie aka Joanna (here is her Facebook page). And this time we chose an elven wedding as theme. Since only creating a new pattern with bell sleeves and a free back for the gown is waaaay too easy, I decided to try something new [...]
