Pearls, gold, and silk.
I’ve yet to put the lining in, but I think that’s going to look ok. I will just have to be careful not to turn round suddenly lest I smack unsuspecting passers by in the gob with my incredibly heavy sleeves…

Wow! that looks rather Venetian. It is very beautiful.

It would suit an Elizabethan doublet, now you mention it. But zigzags are very norman

Very elegant. And those weighted sleeves could start a new martial art.

Nah, I’ve got a rolling pin for that…

Weaponised sleeves… Plaits with jade rings in the ends… Who needs steel?

You need it for good scissors, and kitchen knives, but other than that

This blog is solely for textiles, with a little bit of silversmithing now and then, and will mainly be for my historical stuff.
Please do not use my images or pin them without permission.
My interests range from ancient greek to tudor periods, and I tend to be an artisan rather than an academic - not that I don't do research, I just prefer getting my hands dirty.
I dye, spin, weave, sew and embroider, and have been doing so for several decades...
