Ughhh... I am about to go CRAZY from all the projects I need to photograph and post about. I am worried about losing all my lovely friends and readers because of not posting enough!
This past weekend was a lovely (belated) 12th Night party which I wore my 1790s jacket to. The jacket, however, is NOT FINISHED because I managed to come down with a flu-like thing that took me out of commission for a good 3 days, and really left me unmotivated to do much sewing. The jacket itself is done, but the under bodice/waistcoat is not. So I'll show you the precious few pictures I had taken of the back until I finish it properly!
There's also the "shel'd" print 18th c gown and discussion about "cheap" cotton prints that has been languishing... I feel like such a terrible blogger!!
Anyway, here's some pictures of me doing 1790s hair, a couple of the jacket pics. My friend Emma also took a few, so I might post those when she shares them, if the jacket doesn't look too horribly unfinished!
Beginnings of 1790s hair: slept all night in tiny (1/2" diameter) curlers, then my sister and I teased the heck out of it.
Then I pinned it back. The bottom 3rd of my hair was left straight and looped up, then pinned under the curls in the back.
Mike and I were both dressed in late 1780s/ early 1790s. We made quite a pair!
My sister came to the party with us because my family was visiting this week. I think she had a good time! She wore my "new" floral print gown that I wore at work a lot, and haven't taken any pictures of... Oi!
My family, being awesome:
