But, first, check out the newest addition to my little sewing corner:
|For a mere $10, I scored this beauty, a Kenmore 17126690!!!|
As some of you may know, I had been searching for a sewing machine for the past couple of months, and lucky for me, my wish was granted by a neighbor's yard sale this past weekend! The machine had been tucked away for a couple of years, and after a good scrub and ordering a one or two missing parts, it's as good as new. I am so excited, I've never had a machine to call my own, especially one with so many nifty features!
|Look at all those fancy stitches!|
|It even has a free arm and pocket for keeping spare supplies!|
- 3 early-style shifts
- 1810s-20s bodiced petticoat (need to make for this weekend)
Beginnings of an 1830s kit for Thomson Tavern:
- Light blue cotton petticoat
- Brown linen petticoat
- 1-2 short gowns
- Striped linen half-apron (needed by the 15th)
- Brown belt with mother of pearl buckle
- Another kerchief or two
Blog Posts Pending
For things ending, I have a few last internship related posts planned:
- The completed Sophia Project
Fairy Camp Costumes: two tutorials for the girl's tutus and boy's tunics, as well as the finished fairy queen costume (skirt, blouse, corset & stomacher)
Also, I'm planning to slow down on past project posts with only a couple more that I would like to show:
Stages presents: Doctor Dolittle (2013) Senior year independent art study, portfolio
For new things beginning, I would like to shift the focus of my blog to more recent sewing, documenting my continued learning and projects attempted:
- 1830s kit for work
- Perhaps even catching up with the Historical Sew Monthly challenges...
Stay tuned for what's to come...thanks for reading!
