My First Tudor...
completed in 1985

I'm always asked "Where did you get the fabric?"
You guessed it, it was curtains in a former life.

The base of the fabric looks like ivory colored
slub silk with cut black velvet. (I had just enough
material left to make a doublet for my lord
husband and to make a second set of sleeves
for this dress.)

The black fabric is cotton velvet. The undersleeve
is embellished all over with pearls.

The chemise is made of a fine lawn with a
simple blackwork embroidery on the edge
of the ruffle. I also created all the jewelry and
accessories.

                    I have been in the SCA since 1982. 

My registered medieval name is 
Briana Etain MacKorkhill.

This is my heraldic device:

The heraldic blazon for my coat-of-arms is:

Vert, a windmill bendwise sinister and on a chief  dovetailed argent, 
three strawberries gules, capped vert.

 


The blazon of my two badges are:

                     
                   
Badge 1: Argent, ermined vert, a strawberry gules, capped, 
within a bordure dovetailed vert.
 
Badge 2:  Vert, ermined argent, a maunch reversed argent.
                   

                   

Because of my service in the SCA and for activity in the arts & sciences 
I have received the following awards: 

Award of Arms 
(for activity & skill)

Order of the Torse 
(for service)

Order of the Golden Calon Swan 
(for skill in making medieval & renaissance clothes) 

Order of the Calon Lily 
(for advanced skill in making medieval & renaissance clothes)

Order of the Cross of Calontir 
(for extensive service to Kingdom & Society)
 

                     

On March 27, 1999 my lord-husband, Modar, and I 
had the honor to be invested as the 
8th Baron and Baroness of Forgotten Sea.

On June 9, 2002  my lord-husband and I 
stepped down from serving as the 
Baronage of Forgotten Sea
In recognition of service, 
I was made a Court Baroness.

I love to create medieval clothing of all kinds, but my favorite period of
clothing are those of the 1500s, including Tudor and Italian Renaissance.
Check out my picture page for more examples of my work.

If you're interested in learning to make clothes like those worn in the
Middle Ages and Renaissance eras, there are articles on the subject
at my clothing page.

The SCA groups that I am currently connected with include the
Barony of Forgotten Sea, the Shire of Cum an Iolair and the
Canton of Aston Tor.

My lord-husband and I have a household in the SCA,

known as
House Leatherwolf
