All done and finished.

The work is all done and finished – the last of the fabrics has been cut into and stitched up into a hood. And while I was really happy that everything was done and finished and I could send it off, it was actually hard to pack it up, as the resulting piece was so wonderful that I would have gladly kept it for myself!

The hood, of course, could not be sent off without first trying it on in a few different styles:

The usual, boring way to put on a hood. It was surprisingly heavy, but very warm and comfy!

The “pirate headcloth”-style, one of my favourite ways to wear a hood. Also one of the reasons why a hood has a liripipe – you tie the thing in place with it.

And yet another of my favourite styles! This is basically the neck opening sitting on the head, with the cape draping over head and shoulders in the back. Warm on the head, cool around the neck, and visually stunning.

If you want to see the hood for yourself, you’ll need to go to the Schiffahrtsmuseum in Bremerhaven after March 14, where it will hang out in the new exhibition around the medieval cog.

    Great work. You do work fast. Those 3 styles to wear it all look good and you yourself look radiant!

      Thank you! (The good looks are probably from being so happy about having this all done and dealt with…)
