I'm making up for weeks of almost no posting today :o)
So, my red wool is nearly done, (depending on how busy the pub is I may get it done today, at least tomorrow) I have my old print jacket and linen skirt and my new Indian print for day times, and my Gaulle for the dinner (I don't think I can fit my Sunflower sacque in my suitcase :'( I'll try, but probably not - it means hoops and another underpetticoat, as well as the dress and petticoat) so I'm sorted, at a pinch, for UTR, I want more, but I feel I can move on.
So next I want to make my chemise dress! I'm thinking of making it by machine (all my 18thC stuff so far this year has been done by hand) and TRYING to achieve a down and dirty quicky job (HA! Like it's ever going to happen!) Any way, hopefully it won't take aaages.
After my chemise dress (which is for Jenny-Rose's picnic) I think I better make our Regency stuff for the New Lanark ball, which is the weekend after I get home. I can ony make it if the fabric has come, but I think it must have done by now, so hopefully my friends will be bringing it to dancing on Sunday. I will leave things like hemming and sewing on buttons for Clare, or for the car ride up to Scotland.
I still want to make other things for UTR though. I don't really want to wear my old print jacket, so have plans for 2 new ones. Mummy bought me some fabric from Ikea (duvet covers and pillow cases actually!!) and I have pictures of them hanging on the line after washing ( they're under here, along with a LOT of waffling! )
Then there's my Lampas jacket and pink silk petticoat. I am really struggling coming up with a style for the jacket! I love the fabric, and want to do it justice, but it's a very big pattern, and I only have one yard. I don't really NEED it, so maybe I shouldn't force it to become anything, and just keep waiting for inspriation to hit? It's so pretty though :'( I bet this is all moot anyway, there's no way I have time to fit it in! But at least half term is coming up, a week of sewing! Although I have to make a couple of Victorian bathing suits as well for a trip to the seaside at the start of the week!! And then after term starts again it's the yr 7 play, with 70 odd children to cloth and organise!
Anyway, I really think this is my last post of today, so sorry for cluttering up your Flist!!!!
