Item on my 'to-do' list, that is! The DAMbeson is done and Best Beloved is thrilled with it. It has already been through the wash and fared perfectly. Next test before Ursalmas is fight practice next week. How comfortable is it? How did the hand-stitched seams hold up? I did use four strands of sewing thread which I ran through beeswax. I am confident it will pass muster.
The second photo shows the side panel, which came to a point, in place of a gusset. BB said the range of motion felt good. The pattern is based off 10th century Byzantine accounts. The quilting was done vertically at 5cm intervals.
Next to finish, the tourney placard for lists.
