My internet connection is terrible, I've been sick for a week, my dress is still unfinished (18th century sleeves are evol),my pupils are stupid, and my flat is a battlefield (sewing is a war).

But... I haz a hat. Well if I have the dare to wear it. It is a lot more huge in real life.

The "en fourreau" back of my casaquin is done. Yeah !

This is the costume I want to do to go to the Marie-Antoinette exhibit with [livejournal.com profile] fiofiorina. Let me remind you :


Now how should I tag it... Any ideas ?

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.
