HRE tour: Bavaria- Dress design

07 Dec

Since the fabric did not arrive in time the Freisan dress is on  hold until the end of January.   So instead, we will be looking at Bavaria.  It is rare that I do a long dress for SCA events, but this is for 12th night. This event is all about standing around looking pretty.  I also have 2 other projects I am working on for the event, but they are super seekret elevation surprises. So you all will just have to wait for those.

But in the mean time, I give you Bavaria, in silk brocade, silk twill, velvet and dupioni.

The inspiration is Anna Scheit, and was painted by Barthel Bruyn in the 1520s.

    I really need to figure out how to sew more complicated garb. I really do enjoy running around in my wool peplos, but I need to learn technique sometime soon!
