Tonight I'm going to cut out the chemise. I can't sew it yet because Robin is going to machine embroider blackwork on the neckline and sleeves. I'm actually just drawing those pieces on muslin .
That means she's going to have to fire up the embroidery and make it work. She claims she needed this kick in her bumroll to get her started.
We have signed up for the 1912 project. I hope we're up to it. For the most part we will just be making muslins and we are confident we can do this in a day, if we work hard (sorry, this makes me giggle - there are very limited instructions - we're in way over our heads, but we're still excited)
I've settled on the basic pattern for the bodice to go with my black skirt. It's a modern semi-fitted equestrian style jacket so there will be a lot of modification involved.
I was blog-surfing this morning and saw this, which really inspired me. (Alexander McQueen)
