sewing update

I have cut and am in the process of sewing together the last tunic in the series, for my swordbearer hascouf (he knows about it now, so I don't have to avoid mentioning it -- I got paranoid about it fitting and told him, so I can go have him try it on).  I started at about ten, so I'm making good progress.  I'm about to go do the neck facing, after which it's all easy -- sewing on the sleeve assemblies and sewing up the underarm seams.

Looks like we might have clothes for everyone after all.  :-)

so much for good forward progress...

I just sewed and cut the facing... but it's on the wrong side of the body.  I didn't want to do that.

It's not an irretrieveable error; I trimmed it, turned it, and pinned it, and I can use contrasting thread to sew it down with a buttonhole stitch.  It's just that it was a careless error.  Bah.

tunic update

Assembly complete; only finish work remains, which will include a couple of hours on that stupid facing.  I finished it at about 4:30 this morning.  Yes, I'm very sleepy today.
