what am I up to ? On the sewing side of course.

Well, nothing you might expect because all the projects I have just bore me to death right now, and I can only think of 18th-ing myself. Which lead me to the three new projects I'm currently working on.

First, I need new 18th stays : I have already a pair of stays, 1/4th done, waiting for me somewhere, but I hugely miscalculate their lenght, they are too big, and it would involve a good deal of work to make them right, and I'm not in the mood for this. So I'm just choosing another pattern, from Jean Hunnisset to be exact ; The 1785-1795 "for curvy women" stays taken after a geniune corset from her collection. My take after the first three days of work on it :



Then I have found what I want to do with my IKEA fabric : I'm going to reproduce the following dress. It is dated 1770/75, it is a casaquin with an anglaise back and laced on front, a skirt, and a matching apron. The only change I'm doing will be the back : I will use the en fourreau back from the round gown in "Fitting and proper" ([livejournal.com profile] koshka_the_cat did it).


The first toile is done.

The last project is still at the planning stage, I'm waiting the finished stays to begin with it : it will be a blue taffetas 1794 dress.

Daily stays

I liked so much the idea of [livejournal.com profile] koshka_the_cat that I decided to do the same while I have an everyday access to internet : so here is my daily picture(s) of my in-progress 1791 stays. I also thought it was important to post the pictures of the bonning since the bonning will no show at all on the finished stays !!

Pattern is a modified version of the late 1790s stays in NW's "Corsets and crinolines", modified to look like the stays in L'anglaise et le duc.

Day one


Day two

(Feet of the baby cousin : my stays look ENORMOUS next to liliputian cousin, ain't it ?)
