Remember the brick red tunic I was working on for Sven? No? Not surprised. Refresh your memory here.
Well I finished that tunic nearly two years ago, and never got a "Project Complete" photograph. He's worn it several times but luck was never on my side.
This weekend was Artemisia's fall crown tournament, and he wore it again, and I managed to snap a photo this time. Although, the sun rising over the mountains led to some interesting coloring. I swear, there is no filter on this photo.
Both fortunately, and unfortunately, Sven has lost quite a bit of weight since I made this tunic, so it rather drowns him. This is awesome for his health, but not so awesome for the huge amount of hand sewing I did on this piece. I don't think I'll be taking it in, though I may have to take the sleeves up a bit.
The frigid temperatures as we set up site reminded me rather briskly that I need to step it up to finish making warmer clothes for Sven. Perhaps a wrap coat and some wool pants. His linen pants were far too lightweight to wear this weekend.
