Dare I say that 4 dresses is a tad ambitious...with 1 finished, 2 almost finished and 1 only just cut out and 3 days till we leave.
The pattern is fairly simple and I am improvising somewhat.
I am loving being in the studio despite the heat, it is slowly becoming more functional and organised.
Have been enjoying a dose of Austen films, researching styles, colours and fabrics. We are looking forward to seeing an array of dresses during the festival and perhaps making a more historically accurate version later on.
Even hundreds of years ago, fashion was the same, so many variations on a theme, so fickle and interchangeable. These two weeks sewing have awakened my dress-up desires. I feel more sewing will make the project list especially since I have plenty of patterns to test out.
The schedule has been BUSY. Who said living in the country is boring?!
A short week after the Easter weekend. Scattered sewing. Schoolwork. Local creatives meet-up. Library. Opera under the stars. Baking. New bed. Friends visiting. No wonder the sewing is slow. However, after a few late nights all the machine sewing is finished! Now for some hand sewing before Saturday and we’ll be ready to go promenading and may even check out a few Mr. Darcy”s while we’re at it!
For me, it seems there is not much difference between wondering and wandering. It has always helped me find inspiration. Creative dabbling is good for the soul, I couldn't imagine life without it and often surprise myself by what I come up with.
