I Am A Lucky Mom I Have A Crazy Son Shirt

Oh, and in the middle ages, it would be expected that all of the inside sleeves would be finished. This was all done by hand. A practiced seamstress could probably sew it in 7 hours. But that’s not all that would go into the making. There’s the cloth. A shirt like this would take about 5 yards of cloth, and it would be a fine weave: the Knoxville Museum of Art estimates two inches an hour. So 4(yards)*36(inches)/2 = 72 hours. (I’m a weaver – or at least I used to be – so this sounds accurate to me.) Okay, so hand weaving and hand sewing would take 79 hours. Now the estimate for spinning has always been complex, so stick with me for a minute: Yardage of thread for 4 yards of cloth, one yard wide (although old looms often only wove about 24″ wide cloth), and requires 25 threads per inch, so:25 threads * 36″ wide = 900 threads, which each needs to be (4 yards + 1 yards for tie-up = 5 yards long), so 900 * 5 = 4,500 yards of thread for the warp. And you’d need about the same for a weft, or a total of about 9,000 yards of thread for one shirt.

9,000 yards would take a while to spin. At a Dark Ages recreation site, they figured out a good spinner could do 4 yards in an hour, so that would be 2,250 hours to make the thread for the weaving. Now, A lot of modern spinners disagree with this figure, saying they can spin much faster than that. So let’s say they’re right. And we’ll say that the spinner is in a hurry to make this thread because the shirt’s for her or someone she knows (all spinners were female in medieval times), so we’ll say she worked her tail off and did it in 500 hours.So, 7 hours for sewing, 72 for weaving, 500 for spinning, or 579 hours total to makeone shirt. At minimum wage – $7.25 an hour – that shirt would cost $4,197.25.And that’s just a standard shirt.
nd that’s not counting the work that goes into raising sheep or growing cotton and then making the fiber fit for weaving.Ormaking the thread for the sewingnd you’d still need pants (tights or breeches) or a skirt, a bodice or vest, a jacket or cloak, stockings, and, if at allpossible, but a rare luxury, shoes.
