more pennsic sewing
So I was looking at our garb as I packed to come home from GNEW last week, and I discovered that some of the gussets were already busting out -- I think I need to reinforce them ahead of time.  So yesterday, today and tomorrow are mending days, mostly.

I also finished (well, mostly) and short-sleeved tunic for darkwolfie to wear for archery.  He wanted something short-sleeved, and I had one that I made for something else, so I cut the sleeves off and well, they wanted hemming, so I hemmed them.  By hand.  A rolled hem.  I used a technique that Mistress Clothilde taught me, and it actually went really quickly. I still have to do the bottom.

I also spent some quality time reinforcing the gussets that got blown out with herringbone stitch.  I love handwork.  I definitely have to make an outfit for each of us by hand this winter.  It's just too much fun.

Tomorrow I'll get the rest of the garb out and make sure it's all still in good repair, fix what wants fixing, and then wash what needs washing.  I need to make a list of the stuff that needs doing between now and Pennsic.
