Put a Cap On It!

May 22, 2012 - comments
I'm going to break down my latest outfit into a couple posts, starting with my first 18th century cap! I know, how can I have been making 18th century stuff for 8 years and never make a cap? Well, until very recently, I thought they were a bit dorky. Then I borrowed a friend's and realized that they could be cute!

Brown 18th Century Mitts

December 3, 2011 - comments
I'm century hopping again! A couple of weeks ago I got the urge to make a pair of 18th century mitts. I've always wanted a pair, but have been slightly intimidated by them for some reason. However, I have a winter 18th century event coming up so it seemed like the perfect time to face my mitt fears. I want to stay warm!
