Just another update

So, the farthingale for the Double Gown project is “done”, but it’s a hot mess.  I think it’ll work, and I don’t plan on redoing it.  I may have to tuck it up about one half inch, but I will probably just sew a guard on the bottom of the under-dress since it needs one anyway.  Once the farthingale was done, I decided to put the project on hold.  I’m much too interested in starting the gown for opening day and I still haven’t found black fabric for the doublet gown yet. Plus, I had to clear the sewing area to work on my wedding veil, which forced me to put away the open projects I had.  Getting organized also made it possible for me to do a sort of inventory on my fabric boxes.

For my opening day gown, I’ll be starting from scratch: new corset (untabbed), resizing the smock disaster, new underskirt (so that I can make a detachable forepart), the gown, and a beaded partlet (I can dream, right?) with matching coif. I started the corset mock-up today, and I hope to stop by Joann’s for some supplies tomorrow.  May the sewing gods smile upon me….

Thanks for your time!
