|1810 Dress made from a cashmere shawl, inspiration for my sari ballgown|
and make my open robe and the petticoat to go under it for Jane Fest day wear.
|1790's open robe, i plan something along these lines..|
Then 2 more hats for sale and one bonnet for me.
|I want to make a copy of this Bonnet from Napoleon and the Empire of Fashion, to wear with my sleeveless spencer!|
I need to make 3 chemises for sale since many of my for sale dresses are semi sheer cotton.
Like that's not enough I have shoes to decorate, jewelry to make,
|Cameo Parure from 1840, I wanting to make something like this to match my ballgown.|
mittens to sew, whip up 10 or so reticules, make a habit shirt to go with a customers riding habit and probably 100 more things I can't remember right now....
But with this as with all things it helps to look back and see what one has already accomplished to get a sense of well accomplishment....
In the past 10 days I have made.
2 off the rack dresses
|One of the off the rack dresses that I will be selling at Jane Fest|
|Simple straw hat with ribbon ties.|
|Green silk bonnet with hand dyed silk trim and ties,|
|Red Silk Capote with moss green velvet ribbon trim and pheasant feathers.|
|Straw hat with hand dyed salmon colored silk ties and ostrich feathers.|
1 sleeveles spencer
|Silk spencer made from leftover sari silk.|
2 beaded coral necklaces
|Coral bead necklaces|
And finished the bodice of my sari silk ballgown...
|Silver and purple sari silk crossover ballgown bodice|
In addition to this I finished up a riding habit skirt for a customer and made a fitting toile for the riding habit jacket. But I don't have any pictures of these..
So for 10 days it's not to shabby really.
But now back to work!
