Since I'm totally over-productive and have a family to sew for I didn't feel that as enough of a challenge to be interesting. However, in 2008, Mary Taran of Glastonbury (SCA name)came up with a variation. Knowing that a lot of us have a great deal more fabric than we actually need for our sewing projects, she proposed a twist to the challenge: that we were only to use materials from our stash. Notions are permitted, but at least 50% of the project's materials should be from stash. A LiveJournal group was also created, where we can follow each other's struggle with our mountains of fabric.
This was a challenge to my taste, and here you will be able to follow the proceeding. I cannot promise to make a plan, or to write extensive documentation for all teh things I do, but there will be photos, and some documentation for all of them.
1. A 15th century kirtle made entirely from materials in my stash.
2. A low-cut gathered smock to be worn under the kirtle.
3. A hand sewn linen shirt for my friend Björn/Arnaut. No, no photos, it's just a shirt made with rectangular construction.
4. A hand sewn 15th century kirtle from hand woven linen.
5. A gefrens woven with tablets from silk yarn (dyed by me and a friend).
6, 7, 8. Shirt, braies and hose for my husband.
9. A coif for my husband.
10. A fringed 15th century cap for me.
