Æthelmearc Seamstresses, Weavers, Embroiderers!
Their Highnesses are looking for help from the Populace on their Royal Wardrobe. Are you interested in being involved in making our next Royals look fabulous? Do you have ideas, skills, thoughts to share? Their Highnesses are hoping for outfits inspired by what the travelers of the Nordic countries would have encountered during their trips (raids?) around the years 950 -1050, from Sweden, to Dublin, to Paris, to Iceland and over to Constantinople.
Interested? In the spirit of the Wardrobe Project hosted by Mistress Elisabeth we are hoping to provide more exposure to our wonderful Æthelmearc artisans. Participants would work in groups towards a specific outfit with a predetermined deadline. Historical plausibility is requested. Materials will be provided for or reimbursed. We will again make use of the Wardrobe Project Facebook group to update progress and for the inspiration and enjoyment of all!
We like everyone to share with us ideas for wardrobe items that fit the time period, but don’t worry, we have a few starting ideas as well. Also let us know if you don’t have a specific idea, but would like to participate. Together we will find a way to contribute your skill.
We are looking forward to working with many of you towards another wonderful Royal Wardrobe.
Mistress and Master of the Royal Wardrobe,
