The Calm Before the Storm.

So the measurements have been taken. The palette of colors and fabrics has been finalized, as well as the design.

Lucky for me we have had a lot of company and meetings at the house, so the sewing area was finally completed. Let me take you on the tour. . .

Here is the entire space. Note the striped bar that was left by the previous owner. It nicely cuts the space off from the rest of the dining room, and as it is actually two dressers it provides awesome storage. The bar also features a removable ironing surface.

Here is the desk, and drawer side of the striped bar.
Here you can see the doors open to all of my stuff nicely organized. Mostly. Also more storage from the vanity.

Left side of the wall 'o closets.

Here are the fabrics we decided on. The main fabric is a lovely mossy green wool. The complementing fabric is silver and blue silk.

Here is the concept sketch of the St. George Bliaut.

Well here we go!

Love that trim!

Why put a slit in off centered? Why not just leave the seam open on the gore?

Lorien, it is a very specific style of Bliaut. The St George illumination in the previous post shows the slit over the thigh instead of the center there are also examples from Moralia in Job. Also there is no center front seam in this pattern.

I meant the side seam of the center panel. It seems easier to not have to cut and bind the fabric if you don't have to.
