Busy time working on Oberon
Over the last few weeks I have been busy - Last weekend it was a couple of days at Urchfont with Textile 21 and then yesterday I had another day with Jane Lemon. So I have achieved quite a lot for Oberon's doublet. There is a lot more to do yet and then there are the breeches (need to rust dye lots more cotton for those - I have metres and metres of rust dyed fabrics but no cotton to match the doublet !!) and a mask/headdress, oh and my planning for Mustardseed but as you can tell I am feeling great!! Life is beginning to turn around and I am happy again!!:-) Here are a couple of pics of Oberon's doublet in progress - a close up of the neck ruff - you can see the gold cord - I have many more metres of that to a) make and b) stitch on. I tried the doublet on my mannequin this morning -once it has a small amount of padding it will look something like this... quite a slender chap !! Anyone going to K&S on Sunday?
