Travels around the Known World
In recent months I have kept closer to home. Rivenoak itself has amazing artisans, including our Adept Champion of Arts and Sciences, Lady Kitta Refr. She recently made a late 15th century French outfit for the Ethereal Seamstress competition held by The Barony Beyond the Mountain in the East. She represented Rivenoak well, and won first place for her division in the contest! The project included a supportive kirtle, an outer cotehardie, a lyrepipe hood, hose, and inklewoven garters.
