Soooo many wonderful garments   Cheesy:

Laced onto shoes with 20 eyelets per spat, and an elastic under the foot:

103  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Edwardian jacket on: December 26, 2011 07:37:53 AM
Here's an Edwardian style jacket I made for my sister.  My own pattern based on historical examples.  I left off fastenings because she plans to steampunk it up with buckles and things:

This was my first tailored type of jacket and it was difficult.  I need to learn proper tailoring construction techniques!  
104  CLOTHING / Clothing Sewalongs / Medieval dress sew-along on: December 21, 2011 10:00:22 AM
I'm starting one here!   Smiley

Mine isn't going to be a genuine Medieval dress, but rather inspired by 19th century painter John William Waterhouse, particularly his paintings "Ophelia" and "Miranda"

Here's a page about medieval construction:  http://www.damehelen.com/cotes/patterns.html

Scraps and feathers:

106  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / XL shirt and XL pants to button-down Fall dress on: October 10, 2011 10:27:49 AM
XL men's cotton shirt and XL pants.  I removed the buttons and put 8 button holes on the button side of the placket to turn it into a women's garment.  Next time I hope to remember not to cut through the placket when I shorten the shirt to waist length. I fitted the shirt in the sides, shoulders, and with darts in front and back.  Shortened the sleeves to 3/4 length.  Ruffle is made from the cut off bottom portion of the shirt.

107  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Built-in support? on: August 29, 2011 04:33:49 PM
I hate wearing bras, but my aging boobies are a bit too floppy to exist in public without some kind of support.  Do any of you have links to examples or tutorials for dresses with built-in support?  I've found a couple links to how to add a shelf bra to a top, but wonder if there are other ideas out there...I'm also trying to reduce the number of layers of fabric I have to wear in our stupidly hot weather, and if I can put a bra (or something) in the dress, then it seems like that would be fewer layers...

108  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / What to make? on: August 20, 2011 12:56:05 PM
I've had this fabric a long time, 3-4 yards of a very soft drapey synthetic with a silver pattern on black.  Velvety texture.  I'm not sure what to make - another historical gown, or a dress I can actually wear.   Huh

Any suggestions?  I'm an older gal (pushing 50), 5'6", slightly pudgy figure.

109  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Regency dress from vintage sheet (many pics) on: August 20, 2011 09:50:03 AM
I was saving this pretty sheet for something special and I finally got up the courage to cut it.  Here's my Regency dress c. 1805:

Detail of interior construction (pardon the unhistorically colored stays and lame chemise!):

Pattern coming soon.  Smiley
110  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Wig supply on: August 07, 2011 04:54:58 PM
I'm going to need some wig hair for a costuming project - does anyone here have a favorite online wig supply house?
