My name is Raakel Vihavainen. I live in Helsinki, capital city of Finland.
I started sewing at the age of 11. As I started in SCA five years ago, I have been doing Finnish iron-age and 1400-century clothes for myself and my granddaughters. Last year I finished my first very simple Italian outfit. This will be my second try at Italian Renaissance.
I’m planning to sew camicia, drawers, underdress with sleeves and overdress. partlet, hairnet, pocket and muff are in accessory list. Blackwork embroidery for my camicia will be started this month.
