Waffenrok- Update

25 Jun

I have a waffenrok 90% complete. I need to do all the trim work and finish the shirt and pants, but the waffenrok looks, like well… a waffenrok.

Now boys and girls a lesson about dyes… I bought fabric from the same vendor, same name, same weight, should have been the same color fabric right?  Nope.  They are just a hair shade off. Different dye lots.  Doh!

Good news… this is perfectly period.  Not so good news… this grates on my perfectionist nerves.  Though the change is subtle and you do have to be looking for it, there was a great deal of cursing last night.
