Watch out for the highwaymen

Groningen, Nethe...






My boyfriend likes attending medieval festivals and asked me to make him a costume. We picked out Simplicity 1552A view B for the coat and tunic. We quickly found some nice discounted fabrics in local shops. The fabrics look quite medieval to me but I think they’re not made from a natural fiber. Ah whatever, nobody sees. We couldn’t find a nice faux fur trim for the coat though. Maybe my boyfriend will adapt to the medieval spirits and hunt some deer. Not that we have a lot of wild life in the Netherlands hehe. We’re very happy with the results! Now it’s time for some sewing time for myself.

    Great job! Looks very authentic and you have done a great fit. Careful with the hunting! After it’s you that has to clean and cook the beast – no time for sewing… ;)
