My event season will start rather early this year with my local group Gyllengrans event this weekend. It is a fencing camp, but we will be a bunch of people hanging indoors, drinking coffee and sewing during Saturday. Feels like a good and soft start for this year! I like to be out in advance with things, so today I packed my gear and took a look on the clothes I will be wearing.
To attend a medieval/historical event means your’re supposed to dress the time, so I took out my 16th century outfit (my new one- hang in for photos!) and looked it over. Some items needed ironing, and the woolen dresses I just hanged out for some air. I like the outfit to look put togheter, neat and matching- like something a medieval person could really have worn. One of the things that doesn’t belong is wrinkles and creasing in the wrong places, like you get on a garment when it has been in the wardrobe a long time. So take the time to iron your things and hang them out for air- it will do a difference!
Except from my outfit and a warm garment for outdoors I packed my feast gear. Plate, bowl, jug, knife and spoon, my camera and a sewing project to work on all fit in my big basket. Tomorrow I am going to the grocery to pick up some food, some cookies and fruits and then I am ready to go.
Hope you will have a great weekend, I’m sure I will!
