I think it looks very pretty. Has a 'folk costume' feel to the ensemble.do hobbits do folk dance?
Thank you :D
Hi! Love your blog :) I nominated you for a Liebster award, congratulations! all the details here: http://fairyfingers.blogspot.ca/2014/06/ive-been-nominated-for-liebster-award.html
This is adorable! I love how you've really thought it through in and balanced all the construction with what Hobbits would do! Will you use any of the pieces for historical wear?
Thank you :D I like to make fantasy clothing as realistic as real historical clothing - if it's not believable, where's the fun?No, I do not plan to use any of it for historical wear. None of it is quite right for that, though most of the construction techniques are ;)
It's such fun to see what people come up with for hobbit garb, and how things can lead in fascinatingly different directions! Your post on this bodice last September was the inspiration for my own hobbit gown -- and then kitting out the rest of my family! -- but as it happened I ended up making a short gown based on the Kallfors one from Duran Textiles.
I would like to see your outfit!
You look very hobbity! It's ages since I used any of my own hobbit outfits. Are you a member of any local Tolkien society?Pernilla/Saffran Took
Thank you! No, I'm not in any Tolkien society. So far my nerdiness have not taken me there. I do feel that Ruby would be a rather good hobbit name for me though :)
We started one in Lund several years back, but then most of the active members either moved away or got very busy with babies or dissertations and stuff, so everything kind of went on hiatus, and I haven't had the energy to start anew. I really miss it sometimes.
You look so fabulous! I missed this when you first posted it, but thanks for the link. Your dress is gorgeous!
Thanks Jen :D
I love to hear from you - please comment!
