Something From The Borgias...
Regardless of what the Internet thought about The Borgias costumes, I absolutely *adored* them. Holliday Granger as Lucrezia Borgia was utterly enchanting, and I wanted pretty much all her gowns. And her hair. And her face. My goodness.
Something From the Turn of the 17th Century...
After visiting Jamestown and then receiving Seventeenth-Century Women's Dress Patterns: Book 1, I've had the itch to make a complex ensemble from this transitional period in English dress. This one below is really interesting and different, and I love it to pieces, though there are plenty of more "expected" examples I lust for too.

This Late 18th Century Pierrot Jacket...
I didn't get this one done for Williamsburg a month ago, but it's still on my hit list. I have the fabric I want to use (one of the Williamsburg prints), I just need to get to it...
Two...or Three...1830s Dresses
Yep, I'm still going on about these. I cut out some piece for a test-dress, and I have fabric for the brown, but that's about it so far.

I forget how much I love the Edwardian period. The blouse I found on eBay arrived and is splendid (I'll show you photos later), and now I want a little mini-wardrobe to accompany my original pieces (all two of them...for now).
I adore the costumes from both seasons of Mr. Selfridge, particularly a suit that Ellen Love wears in Season 1. I can't find many photos of it online, so I'll have to track down which episode it appeared in, and take some screenshots. Anywho...something like THAT.
I guess that's all for now...I mean, there are 100 things I'd like to make/have, at any given moment, but they won't just magically appear! I hope my sewing inspiration returns soon!
