Awesome, I hope you'll let us know how it goes!
Will do for sure! 0u0b
Sewing a knee length coat out of stretch velvet. Pray for me.
May the crafting gods be with you
It has to be done by Saturday
Oh good grief
Oof, good luck!
One of the weirdest larp jokes I make is The Garb Machine. I don’t know how to explain the kind of sewing hyper focus I can get into when I have a new project, especially to neurotypical folks. Not that there are many of those in our game, but people who don’t get single track hyper focus are common, and people for whom sewing is a mystery and a chore are about as rare as rocks. So my running joke is I have a machine I put fabric into, pull a couple levers, and garb comes out.
anyway, I made this in two days. It would have been one day but I ran out of thread.

Oooh that looks amazing!
oh that is so crisp and cool and severe i love it
Someone got video of me fighting in the tunic and put it up on tiktok. It moves super nicely and fits really well.
My next project is going to be this blackwork bat
I can't decide whether to do it in hot pink or lime green, does anyone have any opinions? (the fabric is navy blue, if that helps)
For navy I'd go with pink!
Lime green! Because navy blue.
Back when I was a wee child, with a new coloring book, I decided that the ultimate in coloring excellence was to color all the spaces with nile green and to trace all the lines with navy blue. I persisted until the green crayon was worn to a nub.
This may not be relevant to your decision.
Also, I like bats. Petted one once. The Amphitheatre at Chautauqua was open, and during evening concerts bats would be flying around above the heads of the audience, which paid them no mind at all. Presumably, preferring bats to mosquitoes.
This delights me so dang much. Bats are such good critters! And I’ll take a swarm of cute flying babies over even one (1) mosquito ANY day, thank you very much.
Won a small competition with the blue and gold tunic.
Finally gotten past where I was before I had to tear two letters out!
new sewing project: DRESS ALTERATION.
ivory colored, ankle length, close cut dress from the 80s. Polyester. Cheap lace at the bottom hem. Carmen collar with decorative flounce, satin ribbon halfway up the skirt and around the flounce. has a tie-around belt with plastic beads on it.
bad color, doesn't fit at the waist (too tight) but fits at hips and tits
chopped it in half to make an ankle length skirt and a crop top, used the space where the zipper lived and the fabric from the removed waist to insert some fabric into the top. Inserted an elastic into the top hem of the skirt, hemmed the croptop (all of this done with help from mum, who found the dress in HER mum's wardrobe). Removed the cheap white lace (mum kept it)
dyed all three pieces black
bought nicer, simpler, black lace. edged the skirt, the top flounce and the bottom edge of the top in lace
Add some beads and/or rhinestones to the top edge of the flounce
add a Trachten-buckle to the belt, then fixate all of it firmly on the skirt in arches with some decorative beads involved.
Current state of the project:
