Have you ever felt this way?
I’ve been diligently working out the kinks in my 18th century wardrobe for Colonial Williamsburg, in two weeks (eek!), but as I near the end of this period of intense stitchery, all I can think about is making other things.
These other things include three (yes, three) 1830s dresses…
|A pink/white version of this crazy puff pastry from The Young Victoria|
|Brown silk dress from Bunka Gakuen Costume Museum – c. 1835|
I have acquired the Truly Victorian 1830s Romantic Era Dress pattern (TV455), and am just *itching* to get slicing on the mock-up.
Meanwhile, there’s a big local event coming up – the 3rd Annual Titanic Tea:
…and of course I don’t have a THING to wear! I have a design, though…just no pattern, fabric, or time. The tea is 2 weeks after I get back from Williamsburg. Think I can do it?
|Met, 1911. Of course it will look nothing like this…maybe a little like this…something like this, but for tea.|
