Third-Year Journeyman: Journey I - Local

First Month - July

Time for a new set of dress boots.  I like to use dark colors for boots because they go with just about anything.  But I have to be careful about the shade because it's easy to clash with Seeth's brown hide.  This time I decided to go with a dark brown, several shades darker than Seeth's hide.  The soles are layered pigskin; I used herdbeast leather for the structure of the rest of the boots, which go up to mid-calf.  I covered the herdbeast leather with another layer of pigskin, which I glued and stitched.

Second Month - August

Since I just finished a new set of dress boots, I decided to go all-out and do a full new set of dress leathers.  Dragonriders frequently use leather for fancy clothes because they double as gear that's safe for riding dragons, thus they don't have to change into Gather clothes after they arrive.  Next piece: leather pants.

Herdbeast leather is the best choice for dragonrider pants.  I buffed the leather to an ochre hue, several shades lighter than Seeth's hide.  I also lined the inside with a thin layer of fine wool.  It makes the pants a little warm for daily wear, but it insulates against the cold of between.  I didn't do any special cuts except to make the hems large enough to fit over the boots I made last month.

Third Month - September

The calfskin leather shirt I made to go with the pants from last month.  I dyed it a dusty scarlet.  I cut it loose to allow movement.  I'm fond of flamboyancy, so I left the sleeves especially loose with buckle cuffs.  The buckles and buttons are horn, polished to a pale tan.  I drew out the wide collar so it lays open across the upper chest and starts buttoning at the base of the sternum.

Fourth Month - October

As the final touches to the outfit, I did a vest and belt in a dark teal.  The vest is made of kidskin and cut thin to sit under the wide collar of the shirt.  The arm holes are large to accommodate the flaring sleeves.  The belt is made of wherry leather with a brass buckle.
