So costume parties are not usually my thing but I do get the occasionally invitation now and then. Most of the time I am able to come up with an excuse to get me out of the inevitable problem of trying to assemble some type of costume in a mad panic an hour before I have to leave. Well when my good friend of twenty years Jerry told he was having a medieval themed costume party for his up coming 50th birthday I could refuse the invitation.
I decided to go with something simply since I don’t have much experience in costume making, my choice was to make a simple tunic. As much as I love the idea of hand sewing with a bone needle like they did back in the day my time constraints mean I would need the help of modern technology to get this done on time, I needed a sewing machine. I headed over to the sewing sewing experts at www.sewgoodreviews.com and pickup up decent general purpose sewing machine. Then I went down to my local fabric store and pickup up a generous sized piece of fabric to craft my tunic. A quick search on youtube provided a few videos to help guide me on my sewing adventure, the one below was simple and to the point.
Now I just need to find a gallon of mead to take to the party!
