I've listed my first item on Etsy, a pair of mitts. Not that they haven't been ready for quite a long time now, but as much as I tried, I couldn't manage to make decent pictures of them. I did my best, and the picture are still ugly : bad digicam, bad timer pix. Beurk ! The same goes for the beret I have to take pictures of... Oh my !

You can also constat that I added minimal text : I don't have the seller bravado and I don't feel like writing : "This WONDERFUL fingerless gloves were the ONE piece of garnment you've been waiting for AGES !!!!! They are SO COOL, SO BEAUTIFUL,..." bla bla bla. O the kitsh of selling speeches...

I'm very happy tonight. It's been a long time I haven't been that crafty : today I

- make self-fabric bias for my 1928 dress,
- begin making the related self-fabric pipping,
- sew together the parts of the overskirt of said costume,

- then I try to make a pattern for a 1880 poke bonnet (you can see here, here, here, here, here, here and here -- the first hat -- that poke bonnet was indeed very fashionnable in the first years of the 1880s), with so-so results, but it's only my first attempt,

- and I'm also hoping to finish my crocheted so-called 1928 cap tonight, while lazily surfing on internet.

A good day, really.
