What else I've been up to...

March 26, 2012 - comments
In between working on my Titanic stuff, I also made two new spring/summer dresses. Every year around this time I get the itch to make some pretty new warm weather clothes, and despite the fact that I already have a closet full of dresses in this style, I couldnt help making two more. Plus, I plan to wear these on an upcoming England/Paris trip and I cant resist making a new outfit for vacation. :)

Next, I thought I would share a little of how I draped the overdress. This part of the project was actually very fun, despite the fact that I normally dont like fitting stages. My new dressform really came in handy!

Titanic Dress Construction - Part 1

My Titanic dinner dress is finished, but before I reveal the completed outfit, I thought I would talk a little about the construction. I got quite long-winded so I'll break it up, focusing today on the underdress . I make no assertions that my construction methods are entirely period correct, but I did use the diagrams and drawings in Patterns of Fashion and Costume In Detail as a guide.

I’m such a bad blogger! The undergarments and dress for the upcoming Titanic dinner are finished, but I haven’t posted anything here! Sometimes, for me, I have to choose between sewing and blogging/computer time, and invariably sewing always wins. Before I reveal the gown, though, I thought I would share what goes under it first.
