My garb?

I miss it (it is in a pretty good place, I think; that is, I haven’t been wearing it lately, but I liked it last time I did):

Thank to Stephen Lesnik for this little confidence-booster. Dude, you rock.

I can’t wait to put together the court version of this, with gold embroidery and pearls. It will rock.

About HappyGoth

By day, I'm a graphic designer. By night, I'm a knitter. I'm doing my part to keep Hotlanta stylish. I imagine that if you don't already understand the title of the blog, you're probably confused and perhaps slightly annoyed, but never fear - I do have a reason (and it's a good one). Having gone to hear Stephanie Pearl McPhee, and then having been inspired to blog about knitting, I found myself wondering what to call the blog. I recalled a conversation I had with Mouse and the Chicken Goddess about why it is a Bad Idea to anger knitters - this conversation was following SPM, aka the Yarn Harlot telling the assembled throng about Those Who Do Not Understand Knitting and Therefore Belittle It Much to the Chagrin of Others, or TWDNUKTBMCO, which is not the acronym she used but is the one I'm using because I forgot hers - that is, we are numerous and we all have very pointy sticks, easily transforming into an angry mob. Therefore, knitters = angry mob.

  1. I really like how you posted about the elements of the garb and now we get to see how it all came together. Well done!

    I love the cloud effect on veils – it’s so pretty. My Roman palla does the same thing, and I do a double-take at myself when I catch my reflection.

      I’m digging it. The next step is to attach tassels to the ends, and a red trim on the edges.

      It’s such a cheap, easy way to do things, and it gives me hope for the cotton voile version that I will do eventually, too.

      Ah! Okay. So. This is my garb for the SCA. It’s my first attempt at 16th century Rajasthani (Mewari, to be more precise), and the photo was taken at DragonCon in Atlanta in 2009. Thanks for the compliment!
