11  A 1770's gown ~Pic heavy! in Costumes: Completed Projects by choleblack on: November 29, 2007 08:35:18 PM
I made this at the end of Oct for a ball in the beginning of November. Fun project and not really as hard as I though it was going to be. I call it my 4 day Polonaise Project.

Wool flannel lined with linen. Lots of hand sewing but it's worth it.

First my 2 favorite construction photos.

The pleats in the back.

The barely visible hand sewing on the inside of the sleeve lining.

The finished gown. Worn over my reed boned stays, linen shift, 2 linen petticoats and a false rump. The cap is linen/cotton with a hand dyed silk ribbon. I made everything except my shoes/stockings and the neckerchief (it's just a square of silk Cheesy ) The gown pins closed in the front.

Finally a full length photo with my BF (I can't take any credit for his clothes, yet Wink)

12  A hat as tall as she is in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by choleblack on: November 26, 2007 09:33:22 PM
These are the prototypes for the hat/scarf "things" (really have to come up with a better name Cheesy) my DD & I are making for everyone on her holiday list this year. Made from fleece out of "the big blue box of fabric" aka scrap bin.

DD really loves the pompom. She informed me "You know, you can play catch with yourself while wearing this hat mom."

This was going to be another tester, but I liked it so much when trying it on, that it's mine now (evil laugh). It fits so well over my dreads even.

with more of a tassel at the end this time

Thanks for looking!

13  Waldorf Inspired Wee Felt Folk in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by choleblack on: November 25, 2007 05:49:29 PM
My DD has been longing for more dolls for her doll house. Luckily a few friends of mine knew how to make these wee felt folk (aka waldorf bendy dolls) & were more than nice enough to give me a few pointers.

The entire "family". Clothes are wool felt. Heads are wooden beads. The bodies are made from pipe cleaners & floss. The largest is just shy of 3", littlest just under 1".

a few close ups

the little boy with his funny hat

The tiniest girl.

Close up on the largest ones clothing. My DD really likes the extra details.

Since I was on a bendy making roll, I made this extra special mermaid for our trip to the aquarium. I was able to make her while my DD was in homeschool group, so she was a rare surprise!

Her tail is both wired & stuffed so it's flexible. Again made of wool felt, wooden head etc.

A close-up of the tiny necklace. I also added the starfish shaped beads to her tail & a little bow in her hair.

Thanks for looking everyone!
