War on colour!

Garb is a big part of the sca, and one of the hardest things to get right. Being part of the SCA means much more than just turning up for fighting. I am working very hard on some nice garb based on an Image I found.
 But I can't sew very well so its been a huge learning experience, I didn't even know how to use a sewing machine before joining the SCA.

From research most landsknecht make their garb from felted wool but this would be very hot at a summer event, so I am making my garb from linen and leather.

Landsknechts are also exempt from sumptuary laws so colour and high quality fabrics play a big part of their appearance.

Shoes continue to be an issue but I will continue to learn.
