Distraction Strikes Again…..


I’ve got the green and gold sleeves cut out, ready to assemble.

Then I suddenly decide that what I need is a saccoccia. Quick look around the ‘nets for inspiration, and decided that this one is simple, and would work a charm. I think it’s hanging from a very thin leather studded belt, so I haven’t quite decided how I’m going to finish mine off. For now, I just folded over and stitched so it’ll be serviceable until I think through it properly.

Now that I have the pattern down, down the road I’ll do one with better materials and take the time to hand sew it, but as this was a prototype, I’m pretty happy with it.

  1. I think pockets are fun.  Certainly useful.  Does having your sleeves cut mean you found you pattern?

  2. Yes, I did, thank goodness!  It literally took me three weekends+ to get that pattern drafted.....I would have been so sad had it gone on permanent walkabout!

  3. Gaaa!  Waaant!  If I'm going to put myself through the loathed process of actually sewing my own garb (oh woe!), then I deserve a pair of pocketses, doncha think???  You needs to give me a copy of your pattern...yes, you do!  ;)
