Medieval outfit for little baby
I still had some green yarn left and thought i might be able to figure out some little socks. They actually turned out pretty good! - Except the second heel turned out a little different than the first, but who will ever know? I used the 2 greens doubled up for them too.
Now that i had matching hat and socks, there was some green and yellow fabric in my room that was catching my eye, and i thought it was the perfect opportunity to try out a basic medieval tunic (or dress) pattern. And who better to try it on than a little person who doesn't require a lot of fabric! The fabric is just some cotton gauze- not very authentic, but i wanted to use what i already had. I also found some simple clasps among my sewing things and used those to close up the neck. I stitched the whole thing by hand using golden- yellow thread, and all of the seams are finished on the inside. This was one of those projects that was really fun to work on- i didn't want to put it down! We'll soon see how it fits L.B.... At least someone in the family will have some nice viking clothes!
