And again a new update concerning the 13th century under tunic for my sweetheart – it took many working hours and little stitches but the bottom hemline embroidery is finished! *happydance*
Well, the embellishment is quite simple but the bottom hemline looks much more appealing with this extra sparkle. I think you can say that it adds a certain “je-ne-sais-quoi”. 😉
…especially since I plan to make the dark blue silk over-tunic for his wedding garment as long as the under tunic. There is a really good chance that you might see a glimpse at the linen under tunic and the golden hemline embroidery from time to time. Wooohooo! Sparkle for the win! 😉
But let’s take a look at the nice sparkle of the hemline embroidery – enjoy! 😀
Yeah, as you can imagine, it took quite some time to couch the thread to the rather long hemline. Well, I guess that’s the price one has to pay for a quite tall husband with muscles and belly, isn’t it. But I love him and love let’s us do crazy things like that… 😉
…and I have to admit that I already started working like crazy at his dark blue silk over-tunic. I literally hand-sewed away the last nights and already made a good progress concerning the over-tunic.
Unfortunately the dark blue silk is not very photogenic – especially at night, when I tend to work at it and remember that I should take some photos for you. The photos I took till now of the sewing progress didn’t turn out very well, therefore I will try to take some really nice photos for you as soon as I get some sunlight in my sewing room during the next days – I promise! 😀
Now, that the hemline embroidery of my sweethearts 13th century under-tunic is finished, you can call this part of his 12th century garment accomplished! But I know, you would like to see the whole tunic and my husband wearing it. Well, I am working at it! …and there is a good chance that I get a photo of him wearing it this weekend. 🙂
