I've gotten lovely emails during this time and I tried to answer some of it. But my poor blog related email was as neglected as my blog and most of it went unanswered. Also, most of it is from so long ago that I'm sure the topic has passed now. I feel like going through it now would be a "too little, too late" kind of situation. Especially as I'm still fighting to find the time to get back to regular sewing and posting. I apologize. Thank you for reaching out to me.
I have completed a few projects during this time. An 18th century riding habit shirt (full length, based on a theory), Edwardian corset and combinations, a Victorian seaside dress and a Victorian court presentation gown.
I also have several nearly finished projects, a mid 18th century riding habit (fashioned after that brown riding jacket in V&A with the wide silver trim), a sheer striped 1780's dress, an 18th century Jesuit, an 1880's riding habit and an 1870's ball gown.
I'm also close to finishing my dress in the Vernet project.
Then I have big plans to make an Edwardian ball gown after this lovely photo during next spring.
