Battlemoor V is three months away, but I don’t want to make myself crazy (and I am working in parallel on the staff-and-dignitaries dinners at Academy of Grace And Valor II, two weeks later; that will have its own post soon) so project management is the order of the day.
I’m really going to try to consolidate and improve my millieu-specific “look” over this summer. Most of the work I’ve done in the last couple of years has been geared toward Kursi/Latgali/Žemaitiai, so that’s where I’m going to start: one day’s worth of each, plus the Lipkowie archery kit.
Strikethrough: have, finished, ready to wear. Bold: not yet started or sourced. Italic: in some stage of progress. Updated as I go. There’s some overlap here with the Project Asteroids list.

As you can see I have at least as much jewelrymaking to do as I have sewing! (Updated – a bunch of sewing stuff finished over the weekend, the last fabric bought, and the only remaining “not yet started” stuff is all jewelry that requires heavy-weight bronze wire, which is on the shopping list for next payday.)
Updated 7/6: Jewelry supply shopping done! All garments cut, several sewn! Progress!
