Category/Level: Historically Focused/Advanced
About Isibil: I have been active in the SCA for right at 20 years. I sew frequently, although I have had a dry spell with Covid. I love to hand sew and have been told that my skills are advanced. This project does tie into my persona, but perhaps a little bit of a different location (she traveled). I have made turn shoes several times, I would consider those skills to be intermediate. My naalbinding and knitting skills would probably be intermediate as well. This will be a challenging project both in scope and intricacy.
Her Project: I am going to do early period (10th Century) anglo saxon women’s dress. I have many historical painting/illumination images that will be included in my documentation. I plan to use accurate colors, linen fabric, hand sewn entirely. Naalbinding for accessories, inkle woven trim and hand made leather shoes with either knitted or naalbinding for the socks. I did something similar last fall for crown, but with more of a Calontir emphasis rather than a historical emphasis.
