As I'm not posting much on my sewing agenda, I think I could just do a recap of what I'm I'm working on right now :
- The 1928 Janet Arnold's dress
: I don't have have a picture of it right now (it's the black and white marocain dress). Mine will be Bronze and Ivory.
The pattern is done, except for the sleeves. I made a first mock-up, but really without and underwear it didn't work, so I will have to redrawn all of it after I made underwear. Which are on way : already have a bandeau for the breast. I didn't really search for accuracy. And I avoided complicated ;-))
With( the bandeau _ under a cut because... hem... some people might not want to see that much flesh )
For the hips, I will transform the 1914's thing from Corset and Crinolines
- The 梅 の ドレス (the ume dress)
: 1880. That's the only one I talked about lately, but actually, I've begin working on it only two weeks away.
- The 1873 dress
. I kept it a secret, because I didn't know if will be able to to buy the fabric I wanted to make it. And then, fabric sale ! So now, it doesn't have to be a secret anymore.
I found the pictures of the fashion plate on ebay. That's why they are so so lame.
Note the most important thing : it has pink in it ! Everyone should know by now that I hate pink with a passion. But I'm trying to cure myself.
I've begun the skirt. I'm making a built-in pink
petticoat (yeah not period, but my skirt is unlined, and it required a petticoat, and as I'm doing the following...) and a built in bustle. I'm also thinking of doing a crinolinette, to have the right hem form.
- The final, not begun yet project is the fantamabulous Simplicity 1880's dress.
Yes I know : Simplicity. Fantamabulous. In the same sentence. Wrong, isn't it? Well, no.
Because I'm talking about the pretty :
Why working on that one? Just because I've discovered that my Toto shop is doing great great silk for just 6 euros/meter. That one silk I'm using for my Ume dress. And 6 euros/meter, when you will nedd 10 to 15 meters of silk, is pretty yeah !!
