|I still really love this 1785 polonaise
jacket and matching skirt. 1785 is a bit
late for the event we’ll be attending in CW
…but maybe I don’t really care?
I’m feeling so “blah” about my Colonial Williamsburg plans. Do you ever feel that way?
I have collected some fabric and sewn some pieces – striped silk for a polonaise, a celadon green petticoat, an apron. I started stamping some linen/cotton with red flower, but now I’m really uninspired about all of these things.
This might be a side effect of planning too far in advance, but I think it’s more to do with not following my heart. When it comes down to it, you have to make what you love, otherwise you might never start it, finish it, or enjoy wearing it.
I think instead of setting out a plan in concrete, I’ll just go willy-nilly and sew whatever 1770s-90s items I find appealing, and see what I have by October. There’s something about that chaos that seems appealing.
