This weekend was a self-proclaimed UFO weekend and I really got a lot done. Sometimes you just have to stop the train, and sit there and sew all those little projects that just need a hem or some trim. Things finished: Williamsburg jacket, wool gabardine gown and petticoat, linen mitts, red silk handkerchief, blue and white check handkerchief, and black hat trimmed. Crazy right?! Pictures below.
Williamsburg jacket, stomacher is a chintz remnant from Wm. Booth Draper, handkerchief from Burnley and Trowbridge.The dress form adds another interesting layer of pattern….
Wool gabardine petticoat from B&T gown draping workshop back in November FINALLY hemmed. (The gown was hemmed too but I didn’t take a picture of that part.)
Runaway ad I found that is similar to my physical description and my brown gown/red petticoat combination. Mine is linen, the ad says stuff, but I think it’s close enough to run with. (No pun intended!)
New red silk handkerchief. See any resemblance to the ad?
Black straw hat I bought back in November finally trimmed. It’s supposed to go with a peach chintz zone gown that is still in pieces around here somewhere. I gave up waiting for the gown because I think it will look nice with the above jacket.
New linen mitts.
