Well this is not the first time that I will be hand sewing but since it is my challenge I thought I should join with a project.
So my challenge project will be a codpiece dating from about 1566. My documentation is a colorized Woodcut of a Trabant of Graf Niklas Zrinyi retinue (Landesmuseum Joanneum, Alte Galerie, Inv. Nr. AG 10784-10786). The Picture is taken out of “Imperial Austria: Steirische Kunst- und Waffenschätze aus vier Jahrhunderten” ISBN 3-902095-00-8
I plan to use Wool as the outer layer that will be slashed. The stuffing that will be coming out of the slashing will be made of Silk.
The left side of the outer codpiece will be Hunter green, the right side will be lime green and the silk will be exactly reversed.
