Painting collection

I just found this blog which claims to focus on mother-child paintings from history.

Here's a link to a collection described as 1500s-1600s: http://bjws.blogspot.co.uk/2013/01/1500-1600s-mothers-children-ruffs.html

hope sewing is like riding a bicycle!

After making do and using hand-me-downs far too long, the Horde all grew enough that some new bits HAD (and still have) to be made!

6yr old girl got a heavy (very soft antique) linen cotte, and a jacquard sideless. 14yr old boy got black linen hosen. Both patterns need some perfecting and the sewing skills definitely need the rust shaken off, but all in all, not a bad outting! Of course, I forgot my camera for 12th Night, so pics will have to wait for the next event.

Next a boy cotte and then on to trouble shooting the patterns, and undergarments for all.

Hope all your holidays were spectacular and best of the New Year to all.

Earlier garb I made for my son- 16th century doublet and hose for age 1-2

It occurs to me I never posted about the garb I made for him when he was smaller.

Here is what it looked like in the end, him and I together:

Toddler doublet and hose, one year later

The doublet and hose did still fit, as my son is a slim little fellow.
