It doesn't seem like I did a lot of sewing this past year. I believe that is due solely to the fact that most of my sewing consisted of making undergarments to support new silhouette. March 4th was Idaho's Sesquicentennial Celebration and We Wear History decided we needed to theme this year around the various events that were held around town. To that end, I needed to make underwear to support the skirts from 1863. Then I had the idea that I would make several Regency era dresses to wear to Costume College. Well...an old sports injury focused on my back, decided to rear its ugly head and made is to that I could not attend Costume College. So, this year has been a very odd year. A lot of underwear and hats and not so many dresses. But, when I got all of my creations together, I actually did quite a bit!
Here they are!

Aaaaah....As 2013 comes to an end, I am reminded about how much I truly enjoy costuming and how wonderful it is to have a husband who supports and encourages me in my sewing, and doesn't grouch about the fact that I love to do this wonderful hobby! Thank you my love!
Bring on 2014!! New things are in store!

My absolute favorites are your Idaho dress, the millitary bustle and the S-bend corset! But I must admit there isn't a piece of your wardrobe I don't like. Same with the hats! Good luck with your projects next year!ReplyDelete
Thank you! I really love wearing the "S" bend corset...it is now my favorite corset. So very comfortable! The millitary bustle was super fun to wear....2014 will be very different as most of the outfits I have planned are 1920s! I sooooo cannot wait!!
I hope you have a fabulous New Year!!
You certainly did make a lot! You should feel quite proud. I had forgotten about the Idaho dress. It's beautiful. I love the trim... :)ReplyDelete
Happy new year!
I do feel a wonderful sense of accomplishment with all I finished this year. Not a lot of dresses, but a lot of sewing, so that's great! Thank you for your wonderful compliment on the Idaho Dress...Not to bad for my first hoop dress! ;-) Even though the trim did give me fits both on the skirt and bodice...New Years resolution #1? Make sure the trims match up! hahahaha!!
Happy New Year to you as well!

Hello and welcome to my little blog Caroline! Thank you so much for your wonderful compliments! The pink sheer is one of my favorites and making hats is a weakness of mine! This year is starting off with a green dress again! I can't wait to see what your 2014 sewing season brings!Delete
