What I've been up to....



This is what my room looked like this afternoon. My fabric area had grown intolerably messy - I just couldn't stand it any longer so I pulled everything out and put it back in. Nicer. and neater. My whole room needs a more thourough reorganizing, but that will have to wait until I have more time.

I also have several ongoing sewing projects. A white regency dress and an adult Rapunzel dress, both for Etsy clients.

Then I have a rather interesting costume challenge I'm trying to get done for the family.....

17th century outfits.
Yes, yes. I know. For months I've been saying my next new time period would be 18th century or 1830s.....but unforseen circumstances dictated that it must be 17th century. Specifically the years 1600-1620. English or Dutch inspired. Can anyone guess what the costumes might be??

My costume was the 'experiment one', and it is happily almost complete! Pictures will be forthcoming.

Now I just have 7 more costumes to go.....

*note - the dress pictured is not the look I am going for. It is just for laughs. :^)

I can guess... is it for a reenactment or something of Plymouth Plantation? That's the time frame....
