Last week I had to stay home sick from work and I figured, when is there a better time to work on a new project?? So behold, a short renaissance houppelande with scalloped dagging on the sleeves. It’s made from blue wool, purple upholstery velvet and lined with a black and blue floral brocade. I also think the little square buttons are super cute. I only wish I had about 10 more to add to it.

All up this project took me about 11 hours to make and it’s probably the most professional looking thing I’ve ever produced. Needless to say, I’m a bit proud of myself.

Also, bonus blue leather belt with hand stamping and renaissance buckle and decorated hat, both of which I made the weekend before. I’m so happy to be feeling inspired enough to make things again!

Sharing my own butterfly picture, inspired by @silvarisrose and her beautiful photos. It may surprise people who don’t know me well that butterflies are one of my most favourite creatures. #medieval #butterfly #butterfliesofinstagram #beauty #inspiration #colours

Bodiiiiiiice!
Absolutely could now be more thrilled with how this bodice turned out! Three years ago I could barely sew a straight line, and now I can make things like this in a day and a half. Practice and patience is all it takes 💙🖤
