The Anglo-Saxon-Ish Tunic

Yeah I’ve been procrastinating.

I bought a load of wool offcuts last year with the intention of making myself a tunic, perhaps a cloak, maybe some murder robes. Today the tunic got made. Sort of made.

I’m really pleased with how the neckline came out. I loved making faced necklines, they’re so neat and tidy.

I’m not happy with how the inset gores have come out. They’re not set in evenly and in addition I didn’t put both fabrics the same way round on each side so they look different. I think they’ve got to completely come out and get put back in again.

Other than that, the grey stitching is just basting thread to hold everything in place before I hand stitch it. And obviously it needs hemming.

Meh.
