Stocking My Summer Wardrobe

June 27, 2013 - comments
In keeping with the theme of getting myself ready for Costume College, my modern summer wardrobe with in desperate need of an update. I have very little that actually fits anymore, so I buckled down and made myself some cute new dresses (and a skirt).

No progress on my 1790s stuff yet. After I wrote my last post, I realized that while my Costume College stuff was wearable, I still had a few tweaks I wanted to make and with only 6 weeks to go, I decided to put that first rather than stress myself out by waiting until the last minute. I am not a fan of last minute sewing.

Another just because project, I got it into my head recently that I needed a late 1780s/early 1790s bonnet. Not a demure regency bonnet but a massive mushroom of a hat. I will admit this thing was a little overwhelming when I first put it on, but looking at my Pintrest board of inspiration images, I do think the scale is right. Sometimes it’s hard to get past our modern sense of proportion and embrace the crazy 18th century.

What do you do when you need a creative recharge? Oftentimes for me the best way is to make something just because – no deadlines, no events, no plans, just the joy of making a garment and giving myself full creative freedom. Read more...
