I’m a bit behind in posting, but here are a summary of the items I made last year.
I started the year with grand planes (pun intended) and made pannier for the first HSM challenge of the year – Foundation
And one snowy evening I cobbled together a fake fur hat to match my neck-stole
For Februarys challenge – blue, I continued with the winter theme and finished my Redingote which I´ve started in the fall.
I also had the time to (start) and finish a 18th century maids outfit for the 3rd challenge – Stashbusting.
And while I was in the mood to clear out some stash I also made a “Little red riding hood” 18th century cape
and a brown wool skirt for my sister.
April came with spring, and I made a summery outfit for “Lady Mary” and the – War and Peace challenge
In June I scrambled to finish my 1850s plaid summer dress in time for an event.
Then I had some fun designing and making a crazy 18th(ish) century masquarde costume.
Almost all of July was spent on making this 17th century bodice (and skirt and accessories) for Isis wardrobes “Sew 17th century challenge”
August is medieval month in our part of town so I made an 15th century Burgundian dress for my sister
And used an old thrift store find to complete the -Heirlome challenge with a 1850s farmers dress.
September, with its magical colors and a drawing to the forest, made me want to make an “Outlander” inspired outfit.
And to make a stylish (yet autumn inspired) 1900s day dress for the Brown Challenge.
It was around this time my head finally caught up with my body and realized I was pregnant, and needed to slow the heck down.
And that´s exactly what I did – I closed the door to my sewing room, and have just now started to once again peak through the key hole.
And so my sewing year of 2015 ends in October.
I´t will be some time before I´m back to more regular posting and sewing (but I finally starting to dream of pretty dresses again) so hopefully I can show you some new stuff in not so long.
