About Etain : I’ve been in the SCA since 2003. While I’m not new to sewing, most of my garb is t-tunic style because I’ve mainly done early-period recreation. So, I’ve only done gores once, and I’ve never fitted a bodice. (I’m feeling a bit nervous about those parts.) Otherwise, I’m a jack of all trades. I’ll try anything once. Arts that I excel at include wire weaving, making lucet cord, and drawing celtic knotwork. Currently, I’m trying to improve my skill at tablet weaving, and I’m incorporating that into my project. This project doesn’t tie into my persona, per se. I’ve been wanting to switch from early-period to late-period for awhile, so I don’t have the late-period persona built yet, but I plan to have fun doing it. This is part of my anti-boredom COVID plan.
Her Project: I plan to create an outfit for an upper-class woman from Ireland in the mid-1500s. I’m basing it off of the Shinrone gown and the illustrations by Lucas d’Heere. I’ve wanted to make this for awhile.
