My apron-skirt is done!

In my last entry I wrote that I had bought some fabric that I wanted to make a smokkr/apron-skirt out of. Yesterday I finally finished it. 3 am. My University initiation was far more intense than I could ever have imagined and time just flew by. Since I needed it yesterday last night was the only time left to sew. But I made it, wohoo. 
 
So, the fabric I bought was this one from Medeltidsmode. The pattern was based on a smokkr-pattern from this booklet. I can't remember where I bought from but I'm fairly sure it was either Medeltidsmode or Korps. The booklet is in english and contains instructions for two sarks and two smokkrs (apron-skirts). I didn't fully follow the instruction and I honestly kind of regret buying it, but it might be useful to have some instructions for future projects. The apron-skirt I've made is based on the fitted smokkr which is the third instruction in the booklet.
 
So this is the result; 
 
Besides the apron-skirt I'm wearing an underdress (which can't be seen) and a green wool-dress. The straps on the dress is sown to the bust for now but I'm planning on (when I've saved some money) to buy a pair of viking brooches which I think will take the dress to an entirely different level. 
 
Funny story though, the first thing I do with the fabric is to spill out a glass of milk on it at 1 am. You could say that I was not super happy after that :P 
 
Something I really want to do next is learn how to tablet weave (which would be really cool to sew on to the dress aswell). Anyways, I hope you have equally amazing weather as I've had, that you can enjoy the last of summer and just have an awesome week!

I got something in my mail!

So this fabric came in my mail today. It's 2.40 m krappröd wool from Medeltidsmode. The plan is that this piece of fabric now in August is going to become a fitted viking smokkr. I'm really excited to get sewing again - it's been a while now. I'll keep you updated on my progress!

Fashion in Middle-earth - Gondor Hairstyle!

For some days ago I was searching on youtube for medieval-hairstyles and I found something that I think would make a very good hairstyle for a lady from either Rohan or Gondor (or perhaps only Gondor since it isn't so suitable for riding).
 
 
I made a hair-net-ish hairstyle of the hair from the front part of my head. Then I gathered all my hair into a ponytail and made two lace braids which I pinned to the base of the ponytail. Haha, this was literally the most crappy explaination ever so if you're curious how to do this hairstyle watch the following youtube-clip from which I got the idea to make the hairstyle. (Oupsie, it was impossible to insert the actual video clip to my blog, but click here if you want to watch it.)
