I'm very behind in posting about recent costume events, so naturally I'm going to push that off a bit longer and share a quick post about a tunic I recently made for a friend's son.  He's involved in some kind of fantasy-themed LARP where he portrays a dwarf.  My friend specifically asked for earthy tones, but also wanted a green that would bring out his eyes.  They're a very striking light green with a gold/yellow undertone.  Here is the inspiration pic:



I chose a softened canvas-weight linen for the fabric, a long-pile faux fur, and a unique woven poly trim I found on ebay from seller mespa13.  You'd think that a canvas weight fabric would be too much for a tunic, but it was already softened and got even more drapey after an initial run through the wash.  It also got more textured and rustic-looking, which is exactly what I was hoping for!  I was in a rush to get this packed up and in the mail, so the wrinkles you see here are due to my only ironing where it was absolutely necessary (ie, the neckline facing.)  Then again, it is linen, and we all know how prone it is to wrinkles!

It was delivered yesterday, but it's a Christmas gift.  So I won't have any pictures of the young fella wearing his spiffy tunic until after the holiday.  I hope he likes it!
