New Fancy Pants Garb

I’ve been meaning to do this for YEARS. I’m finally getting around to making new garb. Currently I have 2 garb projects on the go, one for myself and one for my sister.

Both of these outfits will be the Norse Apron Dress and Underdress combos.

Jaime’s Outfit

This one I bought the materials for over 2 years ago. It was meant as a birthday present… the buying of materials and making the garb. I suck LOL

It will be an oatmeal/natural colour underdress and a dark navy blue apron dress. Both in Linen. Currently I’ve got the body of the apron dress sewn together, I’ve been holding off on doing the straps and hem while I’ve been out of the country for 2 weeks.

I have been working on a navy blue and silver tablet woven trim so the plans right now are to use that to bling out the dress 🙂

My Outfit

I’m not sure what the Underdress will look like yet, potentially just a natural linen, but that will come after the apron dress is complete.

Apron dresses are much easier (in my opinion anyway) so I decided to work on those as a means of breaking back into this whole sewing thing.

The apron dress is a wool blend. I found some really nice raw silk so I’ve added a band of brown around the top. I’m currently in the process of doing some decorative stitching in what I’m calling a honey mustard colour… Herringbone stitching along the seams (not entirely HA but I’ve decided I’m OK with that)
