I’ve been happily jumping from hobby to hobby without stress since the new year started. Over the last few days, I’ve been working on the green bodice, which will be posted on the Small Projects page. I’ll be consolidating a few tiny pages into that one for easier navigation. I’ll reserve full pages for ensembles and longer projects. Back on track…I’ll stitch the eyelets for the bodice next week, and make straps. I also need to find a strong cording that’s worthy of the colors in the bodice, and I also need to decide what to do with the remaining piece of fabric. It’s much too small for courtesan-style bloomers, but I could probably make a frilly sort of skirt ruffle thing. I’ll sketch some ideas, but there’s no pressure since this is a “just because” piece. The binding is brown satin, but it blends with the green in the picture.
The bodice is waist length, although, it’s a bit shorter than I planned. The back will look like a racer back when the straps are in place, since they’ll jut out from the center.
This weekend, I was introduced to the world of doll crafting. I picked up some patterns from a craft-mom, and will start working on a tiny model who can wear my remnants in true Elizabethan fashion. I *so* want to make an Anne Boleyn with a severed head. My issues have no bounds….
Thanks for stopping by!
