I was meant to get on with some embroidery last weekend, but I wasn’t feeling up to it. You know that annoying sort of not well, the sort that’s a few vague symptoms but none of them serious enough to declare proper poorliness and go to bed? That sort of meh poorly where you just can’t be bothered.
So instead of embroidery I made a tunic, because tunics are easy and brainless. Its for the royal chamberlain, Hainsworths melton trimmed with sartor silk brocade. It’s actually interesting because this was almost the fabric I used for my striped dress with the same silk, and I really like how the colours work. Oddly enough this golden camel is quite and expensive colour as it’s not a natural sheep colour but comes from an imported dye.
Modelled here by headless gareth. He grumpted mightily about being a model and requested decapitation. He’s skinnier than the chamberlain so I’m hoping it will be fashionably snug on the intended wearer.
Handsewn – including the repair of a couple of tiny holes in the wool (tiny holes being the reason hainsworths was available for a tenner a metre)
