18th century musings

Well this has been a tough decision and I’m still not sure.

First is my 100% dino shot taffeta. It’s a really heavy weight incredibly crisp and is such a beautiful shade I can forgive the content. But I usually have a very distinct line between historic and historic inspired.

Second is my black silk. Very heavy, very heavy. Also able to be used front and back.

Seriously torn as to which to make from it. Other options for the blue is a francaise or 1870s convertable gown.

The black silk can be anything from 16thC on!

Also my beaded silk? Sigh it really does look fab as a Reinette inspired gown. But I also want to go total fantasy with it and yet it drapes so nicely over hoops.

Also coming soon, a fancier Leia wig tutorial. Also her buns are so much bigger than most costumers realise… I need to do a scale diagram.  But her buns sit on her dress collar.

They may also get bigger the more sass she expresses.

And also I am having major issues with the way the lace sits at the crown. I have already done major work on this so I may as well get the sectioning clips out to stitch that down!

Patterning! And exhaustion!

Been sleeping until at least 2pm each day for the last three days so I’m no entirely sure what is going on there…

That said I have been able to do stuff, as can be seen by my posts ;)Today I redid the bodysuit pattern for my Blood Dragon. I am much happier…

Some success!

1) Industrial overlocker humms and purrs like it always has. The wheel turns by hand again so I should be able to get a few drops pf oil there just to make sure :)
2) I have cones and cones of black so I’ll swap out the black thread from my baby lock so I…
