Newest Projects

Well for the first off, my dress is nearly done!!

And though it is quite a spoiler, I'm going to go ahead and show it to you!

I rushed and took these pictures this morning, knowing I would be here today, and could show them to you. Here is everything in order I put them on.. and don't worry... these will be in color!

My Chemise is made out of a soft cotton, is about calf length, and if you look close you can probably see the saftey pin holding it closed for the moment *whistles*

I decided to try my drawers crotchless this time... we'll see how that goes. The corset is the only thing I have that is NOT period in the least! A friend gave it to me as a temp. It's spandex with boning in it... it's rather uncomfortable... but it'll work until I get up the funds to make/ buy a real one

And finally the finished product. it needs hemmed and a kick plate, some sort of trim.. maybe and of course buttons.. (I procrastinate on buttons can you tell?) oh! And I have to make a collar.

As my next project, I decided to teach myself to knit. Luckily... I learn quickly. That is, with several you-tube videos and a lot of help from my mom!

And my result is!

A sock!

One, sad, ill- fitting, itchy sock.

But hey! it's a sock right? (And yes, I know there's a needle in my toe... but mom has yet to teach me to cast of...)

I only wanted to see if I could. The next one will be better! and I'll have the right type of yarn.

My next project, (also a "See if I can do it, with spare yarn) is, A sontag!

Now this one is going much better!.. so far. It's a simple knit five purl five pattern and then you switch every five rows. As you can see, I'm not very far yet, so I haven't gotten to the crossing "Arms" yet. But anyways, there 'tis! my latests conquests!

Love and Huggs!

Anne Inspired Dress

Well I don't know why I've never posted pictures of this dress before, but Anne week over at "Bramblewood Fashion" posed the perfect opportunity.

Sadly I missed that, but I had this post ready. so here 'tis!

This dress is a revamp on Jenny Chancey's "1914 afternoon dress." It's shortened,like I did for my Biltmore trip. But To make it different I used sleeves from Simplicity 0000
I cut them down quite a bit so they weren't so hideously big, but they are still puffy.
Anyways. Hopefully I'll have a few more up later, Enjoy!
Love and Huggs
(ps.. sorry, I couldn't find the number of that pattern, I'll look at it later and post it)
