Busy, Busy!

I am in the midst of so many projects right now! Making a hat and reticule to go with my red wool caped pelisse, which I will be wearing when my friends and I visit the HMS Surprise. I am also making a new petticoat, since my old one finally came apart in the wash! I also have my 1938 dress to make. But I'm really anxious to get started on my Regency shoe experiment. I have all the materials, I just need to dive in!

My lovely wool arrived today from Fabric.com. I am torn between 1860s and 1880s, but 1860s is definitely MUCH more practical for me... *sigh* Someday I will have a beautiful bustle gown!
