I decided to make a little planning of what I need to do in september, because, I have a LOT to do :

_ finish the 18th century stays. Should be doable. I f I work fast enough, I can have it 80% done for the first September. The only problem is that I haven't done a lot of handsewn eyelets by now, and they can be the longest part of it all...
_ rework my old française (at least pin the alterations) and do correct pictures of all my 18th century costumes collection. For the people of Les Menus Plaisirs.
_ make a quick 18th century jacket. Because I have too few 18th century costumes for the moment.
_ make the 1830s-40s underpinnings, except finishing the red quilted corset. I leave that one for October. This means : 1 corded petticoat, 2 or 3 flounced petticoats and 1 multi-layered petticoat as instructed on [livejournal.com profile] demode_kvc website. I'm not sure of being able to do this in September. But I REALLY need to have it done quickly, before doing the dress. At least, if I decided to choose to do the 1848 revolution dress, a little part of it is already done.

This is corset I'm working on now. Entirely made by hand, it took ages...







A couple of others in my LJ gallerie, here.

Phew ! That was a lot of work !

I put my current dress diary online : the 1848's Révolution Flounced Day Dress !!

There's my research (less pedantic that it sounds) and the pattern I have choosen. And a zillion pictures about just everything, from inspiration, to patterns themselves. Because I love dress diaries with zillion pictures :))

I'm not dead, just overwhelmed with the difficult task of subtitution mother and let me tell you : now, it's a definite "NO!!" to have my own children one day. Ugh ! You have no life. No life no life no life !

On the WTF front, I ordered boning from my usual seller, use big Harry Potter CAPS to precise my current adress,... and they just send it to my usual adress ! "You should refuse the package, and we will send another!" Yeah, of course, I will just use the beautiful teleportation machine I recieve for X-mas last year, and never find an occasion to use. *wipe dust*

So no, I just have to return to my slightly-intoxicating-masochistical flounce dress. Bleh ! Want to do a corset. Want to do a bodice. Want to learn my Japanese Kanji. Want to jump from a cliff. I just don't want to make another flounce.

I want another corset. I NEED another corset :) In fact, I want two new corsets, with hip pieces, but I will restrain myself, and only do one for the moment. I wanted this one, because the shape is so good on [livejournal.com profile] jenthompson, but 1868 is really too late for the period I want so I searched for an earlier
r corset, and I found this one, 1863, that is just what I want. Then, I told myself : "I know this form." I looked closer, and see it was quilted, and I retold myself : "I know this corset."

Well, I really do know this corset :)) *waves [livejournal.com profile] koshka_the_cat !!*
