I posted about some small projects that have a big bang around my home... I made a fichu, an 18th Century Cap and I made some repairs to our 18th Century clothes. I also altered my Regency Corset to be shorter, washed and inventoried a bunch of fabric I inherited from my grandmother's stash and I made a bunch of project/accessory bags.
I made panniers... which I've still to wear...
I made a hat for pony cart racing, a hoop skirt for Victoria's Alice costume and a bustle pad.
I made a quilted petticoat out of a bedspread, a bustle petticoat and several skirts/petticoats for my new bustle dress (the lemon, and the raspberry).
All for a bustle dress for the GBACG Tissot Picnic.
Here I started sewing in earnest for Costume College, I made a long sleeved chemise. I also finished my 19th Century Wrapper that I was a pattern tester for! I also finished my first COMPLETELY HANDSEWN DRESS. (OMG, I didn't think I could ever do that! I also embellished a reticule to take with me.
At Costume College I learned a lot! I learned to Ferret Hems and to make Fly Fringe (which I used to further embellish my reticule!
After meeting Trystan at Costume College I decided to work on her Accessories Challenges and I made Victoria a Regency Tam for the first one. I made two Pelisses (one for Victoria and one for me)
I took a break to make some Christmas gifts, and a huswife for myself. I started working on costumes for Toy Parade (my guild for Dickens Fair)
I finished my Queen of Hearts dress (Finally! and after fair started of course) and a fan to go with it...
Just in time for Twelfth Night I made a ball gown bodice for the dress and a belt with a wee crown buckle! Here's a photo as a reward since you were so nice to read all the way through!
