Next up? My summer plans will need to be flexible as I may be involved in taking care of my Mom who might have knee replacement surgery at 84 years of age. However, the following are my sewing 'hopefuls' this summer:
UFO's: The idea is to get these done so I can go to something new.
Finish 1947 day dress (Started it summer of 2011)
Remake a Victorian corset ( the other pretty fell a part).
Finish my Pierrot. (Started it summer of 2011)
Go through my 1880's bustle dresses (day/evening) and see if they need altering. If yes - alter or move on to someone else.
A couple of Summer dresses a la new look
Recover a wing back chair (not costuming but I need to do it)
Recover the seat of a piano stool
Make cushions for a patio bench - I want to get out doors more - my little garden
Historical Dress Wish List:
Regency corset - deadline up in the air
Regency Pelisse - deadline up in the air.
1850's Riding habit or a la militaire ensemble. Deadline - December 2012
1890's Day Suit - December 30 2012
Whoa! Big list and very little time. Once I get my sewing space cleared of clutter and summer vacation begins - in one week! - I will start posting on my progress.
