    So that's a video historically accurate 18th century. I did that for a Moiraine dress because I'm a historical sewing fiend (nutcase?), but you absolutely do not need to go that far to make a pretty dress!

    (But if you do want to do that, it's really not so bad. The first thing you would need - the shift - is literally all rectangles and triangles).

    The most time consuming part is probably the stays. Once you have those, fitting things over them isn't so bad.

    Also, 18th century doesn't necessarily fit all WoT characters. If you wanted to go "historically accurate" medieval or Renaissance styles could work too!

    You still need a shift though :D

    Try out some embroidery! It's nice and portable and sewing-adjacent.

    That video was so cool... All the little ties and pieces to add on top... Makes me realize how easy we have it these days... Just pull on some pants - or not, if you work from home. :look

    My sister and some friends and I did a WoT-themed photoshoot recently, and some of the photos turned out quite nicely, I think! We were going for "Sedai & Warders," since none of us had the time, patience, or costume-bits on hand to directly cosplay Moiraine & et al.

    This rad horse is named Lady. Me on the horse.

    Daaaang, that's some seriously scenic photos! Having a horse in there is next level.

    It was a really fun shoot, but the least challenging part was acquiring and riding a horse. I grew up riding and now live in Montana...I know a ton of people with horses. :lol

    I'm planning what I'm hoping will be a Saldaean costume. Divided riding skirt with a short, close cut top and coat. Not sure which boots I'll got with yet. And of course, my shawl. My older costumes do not fit me any more because I got fat in the past 8 years. :(
