Even with my continuing wrist and thumb issues, I sewed a bunch of things in 2017. The biggest project was my embroidered Regency gown, which I never got pictures of in France! Hopefully that will change at the 12th Night dinner this Saturday, if it doesn't get canceled due to snow... Being part of the imperial court at Malmaison was a dream come true, but definitely used a lot of my sewing mojo. I haven't been able to get in a good groove since then although I still made many little things after that.
So without further ado, here's what I made in 2017:
*1860s half mourning dress
*1560s gown, kirtle, partlet with ruff, cuffs, and hood (This needs a new hood and a photo shoot with the ruff and cuffs properly ironed!)
*Late 1770s stays
*Bernhardt early 19th century stays
*Madder-dyed wool petticoat with upperbodies
*The Embroidered Gown!
*1807 Ensemble for Malmaison: striped muslin gown, striped silk pelisse, organdy chemisette, bonnet, and a new shift
*Dimity gown, checked linen apron, and striped linen petticoat
*Dark fairy/witch/Hecate/Halloween gown
*1860s corset and drawers
*Black silk mantle and pink silk petticoat
*Green silk calask and cream wool mitts
