In preparation for Spring Crown Tourney of last year, I had begun to make us both matching tunics from a piece of purple and black twill. Since the cars both broke down the in days before the event and it was a 3 hour drive, we didn't go. Thus I never bothered to finish the new dresses.
But today, during nap time, I finished my daughter's!
Purple & Black Herringbone fabric and Trim detail
See? And the trim may not be period, but heck, I paid 5.99$ CAD (plus taxes, of course) for the whole roll! So it looks good enough to me! And eventually, I will finish my own tunic too.
Now, I still need to make my daughter a new coif, and get crunching for my own garb!
