Actually that's not entirely true. I have unpicked all the last minute hasty stitching on the Big Froufy Costume and it is now awaiting me to make new stays so I can do a proper fitting.
I have also finished redoing the hooks and eyes on the Dorothea Maria Gown. The gown has also been cleaned although it still needs to be ironed and photographed properly.
Lets review what I had planned for the last four months.
April – War & Peace: - I didn't have any idea what I might do and I didn't find time for research. Inevitably nothing happened.
May – Practicality: I knew I didn't have suitable fabric for this challenge and had vague ideas of making some tablet woven guards instead of sewing a garment. I've found several tablet weaving projects over the last four months that remain UFO's. It's probably for the best that I didn't start another.
June – Out of Your Comfort Zone: I had to sort through my costumes and decide which ones it's time to say goodbye to. That's really out of my comfort zone! It's not exactly a submitable project but I'm counting June as accomplished.
July – Accessorize: I thought I might make a fan but the closest I got was photographing a fan from my collection. The lighting wasn't great so they might need to be taken again.
What about August? Is it going to be any different? I don't know, probably not. The garden is going to take a lot of my spare time this month. I am just taking things one step at a time.
