Building a wardrobe: a mood board

One of the things Isis and I are working on now is making warm winter cloths. Isis just finished a pair of lovely needlebound mittens and is now sewing a woolen overdress. I'm making a liripipe and a linen chemise, and I also need a really warm dress to wear over my brown one.

But, I must confess I don't really like making clothes: it's so difficult to get the shape and size right.... I'd much rather do some embroidery:-) So, when I cut the fabric for my liripipe, I indulged in a little procrastination by making a dress mood board :-)

brown fabric: my current dress (from a shop in Rijswijk, NL)
dark purple fabric: my liripipe (from a merchant in Visby)
hair pins: from merchants in Nijmegen and Visby
pouch hanger: from Handelsgillet, see more extant pieces in Kunera database
silk, gold and linen thread: thrifted
wooden spool: Bikkel en Been
pouch: embroidery pattern by Wymarc
wool and linen samples: from Naturtuche
