I haven't blogged for a while but doesn't mean I haven't been doing anything. I've been working on several things, some more successful than others.
I've tried to sew a princess seam dress from a black stretch fabric. This was my second attempt ever to sew stretch fabric. And although I followed the instruction manual and asked other skilled seamstresses for advice. The seams still turned out slightly wrinkled. It was meant to be the base of my halloween costume but I won't use it. I'll use clothing items I have in my closet instead.
Another much easier job was making a wizards robe for my son. We didn't buy a pattern but my husband looked at some pictures and cut the fabric directly. I tried to buy a cheap fabric, because it is only a halloween costume. But came home with a black wool fabric. It turned out nice an warm. Which is important as we will be attending an outdoor Halloween event. Pictures will follow ofcourse.
During my autumn break we had a lot of friends coming to visit. One of them brougth me a gift I absolutely love, an black silk and lace victorian bodice/shirtwaist.
While browsing Ebay I stumbled upon a pair of black leather victorian reproduction ankleboots. Handmade at
Anello & Davide.
And ofcourse I couldn't resist.
