So I made a new outfit for Baron Seoan William O'Donovan(celtic spelling: not even gonna try it). He requested I make the outfit as part of a barter for furntiture for camping for me. So, I did. The Tan greenland style tunic I made has red bands of linen on the sleeves with split stitched embroidered bees which are what are on his dvice. The tunic itself is a natural colored linen. Also made is the green brocade jacket which is suppose to be belted with a sash but he chose to wear it on the outside for a different look. Lined with satin as well. Red linen basic loose pants complete the look. I based the outfit design off of images he linked me (which I cant find the link for at the moment). Having had worked till the last minute to get this done, I didnt get a close up of the embroidered arm bands, but have asked his wife to take an image for me and send it so I will post later along with the link for the extant pieces this outfit was inspired from.
