The Start of an 18th Century Sewing Kit

October 6, 2012 - comments
I may not reenact but I am a sucker for all things 18th century, and sewing accessories in particular. I'm sure I'm not the only one with this problem. Lately I've felt the urge to put together a period sewing kit, starting with a work bag and matching pincushion.

Garters Galore!

Sorry, but I can’t resist a goofy alliterative title. :)
Since my current obsession is all things 18th century, it probably won’t surprise you that I’ve been trying my hand at a few new accessories. It’s been on my sewing to do list for more than five years now to make a pair of knitted garters, as well as a pair of embroidered ones, but honestly I haven’t had the time or reason to do so until now. In the past it was always more pressing for me to get a new outfit finished; unnecessary accessories were always put on the back burner. Now, I am happy to say that last month I was able to cross both types of garters off my list!

Portfolio Up To Date!

I am happy to say my costume portfolio page is now up to date! I haven't listed everything I ever made, but I do have pages for several of my older costumes. Not only does it show where I started, but I feel it better represents my personal style as a whole. Please excuse the lack of decent pictures. I really didn't know what I was doing back then. ;)
