Tunic, wool by BraveAnimal Tunic, wool by BraveAnimal
A plain simple tunic made out of woolfabric (felt). Handstitched throughout.
Decorations: On the sleeve is a subtile brown horse. Front collar has two stylized horseheads based on a Sutton Hoo design. ( the bird on the harp) Back has two ravens, loosely based on Suttun Hoo. The band of knotwork reminds me of a torc.

It still needs to have te band at the bottom decorated, but I will have to figure out a nice design for that. I have to keep it simple or else I will sew myself into oblivion...

Very nice. I especially like the idea of having the decoration on the neckline resembling a torc.

Beautiful! I simple key pattern might work pretty well for the bottom...or maybe a step pattern. Though, they might be too inherently geometric, and Sutton Hoo is so damn abstract....

Gorgeous!!! Now i'm jealous, too! You've got great skills in handstitching! :nod:

I also tried once to decorate a medieval dress of mine with handstitched flowers, but i failed in so far as the result was extremely asymmetrical! Are there any tricks to get a better result or is it just practice?

What a coincidence btw! I wanted to upload some of my selfmade medieval stuff this evening, too!! :lol:
