This chemise is but fit for an reiklandish highborn! Yet, I, a simple country maiden, will wear it with pride, as I, with needle and tread, aid the soldiers in their bloody fight over gold and honor.
This chemise is made to be worn at Krigslive VII (War LARP seven), where I will play the cheerful, young seamstress in a peaceful village, close to the battlefield where the armies of Reikland and Marienburg have met to fight over gold and honor. Who will return to their master with news of victory? Who will stand in first line as the cannons enter the battle? And – most importantly – who will ruin their clothes and be in need of a kind seamstress?
Only time and the GM will know!
The chemise is made of app. 1,5 m of off-white linen and features raglan-like sleeves, gathered neckline and home made bias tape. I used the pattern called “unmentionables”, witch is very easy to work with.
Off-white, medium-to-heavy weight linen, home made bias tape from the same material
