A friend is coming to her first SCA event on Saturday; she is as tall as I am but can't wear any of my garb.
Enter the emergency cotte/tunic/bliautoid:
This used to be a curtain, but was swiftly repurposed. A mere scrap of red fabric provided the trim.
Started working on it at 2pm, and was done, including a quick press, and dinner, by 10. It is complete, but not finished, with a fair few taggy threads hanging out, but will cover R. in a garment that is the right shape for her first event. If she wants to keep it, she can; if not, I'll donate it to the shire for loaner wear, or perhaps remake it slightly in a more sophisticated version.
