About Kathleen : I have been in the SCA for 30 years and lived in 6 different kingdoms. As a wanderer I have been involved in diverse activities involving just about everything except fighting. Lately I have been concentrating on sewing. I am most interested in becoming more authentic and learning as much as I can.
Her Project: I plan to recreate an outfit based on a 14th Century illumination from the Tres Riches Heures de Duc de Berry. It will consist of a supportive undergarment, a short sleeved dress, hose, hood, apron and several accessories that I haven’t quite decided on yet. This outfit fits with my 14th Century persona which is loosely located in the borderlands of England/Scotland. This is a typical outfit for most of Western Europe during the 14th Century. I have been waiting long time for an opportunity to make this outfit, I just needed the motivation. This outfit will be made from the ground up with as many historic features that I can manage. The basic construction of most of my garments will be sewn on the sewing machine and then I will hand finish all the seams. This is something I’ve been working up to for quite awhile.
