Having re-enacted this year and looked most closely at various clothes others were wearing, i have a list of what I will make for next year.
2 x posh shifts for SB – possibly a square neck one and a ruffled collar and cuff with some blackwork. <- am making 2 ruffled shifts <-done
1 x new coif for me <- done and worn to first open day
1 x doublet for DH <- not doing!!!
2 x linen netherhose for DH <-couldn't work out, so bought woollen from sally pointer
fixing and altering:
a guard on the bottom of my kirtle and matching band [black wool] <- done
readjust my sleeves to take off the tab and ? bind at wrist <-done
SB needs her kirtle taking down – [ possibly put guard and matching band on]. Also adding a black ‘guard’ to her sleeves to increase the length <- have taken kirtle down, debating guard and band still, and have added guard to sleeves.
fiddle with DH jerkin ? black/alt colour band around it will make it ‘sit’ better? <-nope, will just replace missing buttons! <- done :)
another shift for me <-no time, no time! - but might cut out to hem and sew in period
if can’t find dh second shift, one for him too <-borrowed, thankyou
am borrowing shifts for bb, but may need to alter them. <- minimal altering and mending done
a cloak – predom for out of hours when blustery, but also hopefully of correct material so could be used in extremis! [kentwell not keen on cloaks as prefer jackets. we are all jacketted up already <- grr have lost the wool!! ->next year
a posher looking coif for SB [ poss one of those complicated blackwork one pieces for SB?] <- currently looking unlikely... -> next year
bodge SB poor shift with a collar and frill as an emergency/spare rich shift <- done
