The thing about trying to be organized is that the sewing list always ends up changing, even when you said that it wouldn’t. It morphs and adds on and subtracts and poof! It’s a whole new beast. I think that’s mainly because I make my lists at the beginning of the year before I really know what’s going down with my time. So alas, the new list, revisions made and what not.
In order of ‘due date.’
Retro Dress: 40s and completed! Pictures and write up to come. It turned out so adorable!
Steampunk: A whole new outfit! But the material has been cut and the ribbon for the corset bought. A beginning write-up is on its way for that one.
Civil War: A new bonnet (I have everything I need, just need a day to put it together), adjustment (very minor) to the day dress bodice and a rework of the ballgown bodice, overpetticoat, but really, that’s it! Not much at all!
Renaissance: I really want to make a little ‘Belle’ outfit and it would take me a day or two at the moment to put together. If nothing else, I’d like to have it by Sept/Oct for Halloween, so there isn’t a rush. I have things I can wear… I suppose. I also want to do some beading and trimming on the Italian sleeves.
Halloween: Ah, Halloween. Whatever shall be done? Well, not what happened last year therefore, I present a couple options for myself based on time and expenses: Katniss Everdeen (I get to wear a coat and stay warm! Plus, I all but have that in my wardrobe), Star Trek (Little red dress is pretty easy and would be comfortable if I’m inside), or Artemis (a much more sew intensive outfit).
Nevermind the various other work that needs to be done: some paintings if I want to try and have a booth at a festival around the area, more jewelry, and crafty bits as I find them.
Let the summer begin!
