The 4 first rows where done by machine nearly 18 monthes ago, and I hated them instantaneously. They are ugliness incarnated. I put the whole thing aside and only take it bake two days ago. All the other rows are hand-made on the last two days + today. At that rythm, i will finish it quickly !

As for the cord, I use a real cord !! I want my petticoat to be really really strong.

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.

The next person who tells me global warming is a fake, and there's no canicule in France compare to [choose a place between Texas and Nigeria], and environnment is just fine, and ozone is just fine, and Kyoto treaty is shity, and blah blah vlah, I break his/her nose. Honest. I make a carnage, a bloodshed !!

I'm in Bretagne, right now. Bretagne is suppose to have the same clime as England. What do I say, England : Scotland !! Rain, rain, rain, grey skies, coldness, and furious black ocean.
Well well, I'm burn to the bones (first time in 26 years that I am sunburned in Bretagne, and it's really really bad, I should wear camouflage to go out, else people will thought that I'm a lobster gone human !), I sleep windows open, and I'm still sweating at 2 in the morning, and the north Atlantic ocean is as hot as the mediterranea (I'm surprised all the fishes are not yet dead).

Really, Simili-Scotland is no more what it used to be !

On other news, my young aunt having a bad disease no one as diagnosis correctly yet, she has to spent some time at the hospital. And as it's August, and August in France, is like a subburb of Mars (Life is dead, definitively), the parents couldn't find a nanny for the teeny weeny baby cousin, so, yes I'm going to baby-sit the anorexic baby for the next month, hurra !! My only decent T-shirt goes from black to yoghurt-white in just 10 hours, it tells a lot on what I'm going to live for the next month...

Anyway, I will have to improvise for sewing. I don't have any of my books, I have the minimum supplies, I don't have my corsets, but I have two places to buy fabrics !! : first I will finish hat 2 (1855 or something). Second, I'm only going to do a flounced 1845-55 skirt (I didn't tell you that I was doing a 1845s-55s founced dress ? Hats. It's all because of hats), because, well, impovising a fan front bodice without corset is, what, suicide ?

But, but, but... Please, I need someone to scan for me the page(s) on 1840s-50s flounced skirts in Hunnisett. It's not a pattern, it just gives the lenghts to use for the different skirting and the lenghts of the flounces (I will do three).

Oh, and I will try to begin my 1840s corded petticoat that I will wear under that dress. Insane, yes. I am strangely happy about that bit of insanity... It's been a year I told I will do it, and I just didn't even begin. Bad me. But now I have no choice :))
