Wood Elf basic Shirt

Sometimes I spend months making a really fancy piece of costume, but sometimes its just time to top up on shirts. Like, you can never have enough shirts, right?

I made this for a friend, Imrath, whose character is a Tolkienesque wood elf (without the beard, of course).

Beneath the Armour

My Scalemaille will ruin any clothing beneath, so I made this shirt from a very sturdy cotton fabric. And then embroidered the lining, becase apparently I am that sort of crazy.
The Collar will be turned up and secured with a clasp while wearing the armour. But while without armour, I can fold the front like this.
I still have to finish some things, for example the metal claps have yet to arrive.

A Minstrel’s Dress

And done! No one will ever notice all those glass beads on the skirt…

The waistcoat alone took an eternity to make, but I am quite happy how it turned out.
