Wow it has been a loooong time since I remembered that I had a blog. Almost a year to be exact. New resolution: to write a small entry at least once a month on what I've achieved in my costuming. Since my post last February, I have done plenty of work, not just for myself. Here's a list, mainly to remind myself just how much I have done.
Re-covered my Elizabethan stays with a sturdier fabric
Handsewn Venetian gown with matching lace on sleeves
Flag fan, gold organza veil, pearled corset cover, fur-lined muff
Elizabethan doublet with matching detachable skirt and Spanish sleeves
Underskirt with embroidered forepart
Underkirtle of blue and green taffeta
Black velvet tall hat
Linen gown with shoulder rolls
For my man: (oh yeah, he asked me to marry him about a month after my last post, I said yes and promptly collapsed into a sobbing mess)
Gold worked shirt
Embroidered badges for his rapier guild scarf
Lining for his embroidered cloak
Couple of men's shirts
Re-made a shift
Green silk Venetian
Red velvet Tudor
Blue satin Elizabethan stays
And then there are all the projects that I started but never completed, like the matching brocade covered choppines for my Venetian ensemble and a Svante Sture outfit (with padded codpiece) for hubby-to-be.
Photos will be added as soon as my temperamental computer allows me to post them.
