It’s Superbowl Sunday here in America Land. I don’t follow football, so I’ll be burying myself in the sewing loft and trying to accomplish something on the 1912 Titanic gown.
Yesterday was a Steampunk photoshoot I’m looking forward to sharing with you, but I haven’t developed any of the photos yet, so I can’t post them today! Instead…here’s a look at my favorite striped things from the 1770s (and some from year 1780).
Can’t argue with stripes!
Robe a la polonaise ca. 1780, Musée Galliera, Paris
I’ve got my yellow and blue stripe fabric cut into 19 inch widths, ready to go, but I *need* to finish many other things I’ve started, rather than jumping in to the polonaise that keeps invading my mind. Talk about Costume ADD!
