12th century dress for the “12th century wedding clothing project” – sneak peek .1

2015-03 - Racaire - 12th century wedding dress - wedding - 12th century dress - sewing bottom border.jpgI used the last days very well by doing a lot of hand sewing and am glad to say that I made a great progress concerning my 12th century dress so far.

There is still a lot to do before my 12th century dress is finished but with every day that goes by it seems that I am getting much closer to completing it. This feeling really gives me the power I need to continue after all the hand sewing I have already done till now.

I actually never did so much hand sewing in so little time. But after finishing the 13th century under tunic and the 12th century silk over tunic for my husband, I am even more determined than before to get all my hand sewing done in time for our 12th century wedding at Gulf Wars in just a couple of days. I wish I could show you how my sweethearts face lightens up when he tells our friends about his new hand sewn and embroidered clothing. *lol*

To be honest, though I was already able to add some some nice embellishment to my husbands wedding clothing, I regret a little that I am not be able to add more embroidery to our 12th century wedding clothing before the wedding. However, it is a great feeling that we will have a lovely new ensemble of 12th century clothing to wear at out very special day – our 12th century wedding at Gulf Wars.

I can’t tell you how much I enjoy working with this beautiful silk, especially now that it looks more and more like a 12th century dress. But take a look at the dress yourself and the great progress I achieved so far – enjoy! .:D

I am sorry, but the following content is restricted to logged in members of my blog.

I hope you enjoyed to see the new pictures of the progress and that you like the outcome so far as much as I do. This blue silk is awesome, isn’t it. 😀

And now back to do more hand sewing – I have a 12th century dress to finish and so little time left till the wedding! 😉

Best regards Racaire

  1. Wow this dress really looks amazing!! Great work! The blue fabric is incredible and I love how vibrant it looks in the natural light:) What an awesome color! Your dress construction looks fantastic. I can’t wait to see how it all comes together with the gold silk borders. You two are going to look so dashing in your blue and gold garments;P I look forward to any construction tutorials you might post on this dress in the future, after the wedding of course!

    • Thank you very much Heather!
      I am actually planning on making another dress in a very similar style but with lighter fabric where I can show the construction details much easier than with this very dark silk fabric. <3
