This Yuan style coat and trousers were made based on research done by the customer and adapted to my skillset. The trousers are made in green silk lined in pink cotton and the robe is made of fine teal linen trimmed in green silk, with an inner belt of leather.
A white shirt in the Tudor style with standing collar and cuffs by Solstice Handspun.
This Tudor style shirt is made in crisp white linen. It features a standing collar and heavy gathering at the neckline and wrists, with ties to close.
A man wears a yellow woolen hood handsewn by Solstice Handspun.A man wears a blue hood handsewn by Solstice Handspun in the style of the Skjoldehamn hood.
These hoods were cut by the customer but handsewn by me. The yellow hood is done in a style fusing a couple different inspirations, from early European gored hoods to the later rounded hem designs. The blue hood adheres more strictly to the earlier gored design and is modeled on the hood found at Skjoldehamn.
A man holds up two medieval tunics in matching colors. One is blue with green trim and the other is green with blue trim, both by Solstice Handspun.
These tunics were made as a matching set to replace a tunic that was on its last days. They were made in matching contrast material and feature keyhole necklines, neck, cuff, and hem facings, and minimal seams.

This knitted wool jacket is based on a commercial pattern but was heavily modified, with additional shaping and cabling added as well as a hood.
Linen long braies and blue woolen split hosen by Solstice Handspun.
This set of long braies and separate hosen were designed for a 13th century English ploughman's outfit. The hosen are held up by ties that connect to the waistband of the braies!
A person about to shoot an arrow wears a periwinkle linen dress and a white veil handsewn by Solstice Handspun.
This handsewn ensemble is designed to evoke early medieval European aesthetics while also allowing for easy movement on the archery range, which was not a difficult conversion! The dress, veil, and archery glove are all patterned and handewn by me.
This green dress was inspired by fantasy and medieval European designs. It is made of linen with synthetic green and gold trim and features a gored skirt.
