About A’isha: I’ve been in the SCA my entire life, both my parents played when I was young. I sew all of my families garb. I just have been in a pandemic funk lately and can’t get motivated. Hopefully deadlines will break the log jam in my head. I do research quite a bit, but I’m more of a problem solving artist than a accuracy junkie. If it looks more correct than not and meets my needs it’s good enough for me. I do portray late period Turkish so this will be an outfit for me. The accessory piece will be an obstacle. While I do many different arts I don’t work in too many mediums that would be helpful to the challenge. Shoes, or jewelry will probably be what it comes down to, neither of which I do, but I will do my best.
Her Project: I am hoping to do a full women’s Ottoman Court outfit. I have tons and tons of fabric but need a push to actually make clothes for myself. I don’t know if I will be able to find a pattern for the foundation piece that goes over the gomlek (chemise)but I am sure going to try. So there will ideally be undergarments (think chemise, and pants ) the foundation piece ( sort of the turkish corset) one or two midlevel coats, the outer coat, and then accessory pieces.(hat, shoes, jewelry, veils)
