My renaissance chemise, made with lightweight linen. I decided to go for 3/4 sleeves.
I went to the antiques store recently and found a couple of fun things.
This is an old undergarment, looks a little bit like a corset cover to me! it's just a tiny bit too big for me, I'll resize it and use it as a corset cover for a future Edwardian or late Victorian dress.
These are antique hand crocheted lace gloves. Aren't they gorgeous? I'll use them with the Mary Poppins costume, and they will most definately be of use for many other outfits to come.
I couldn't resist these adorable vintage baby clothes. Maybe I'll try to reproduce them someday.
For next year, I have a couple of projects I would like to get done. they are:
- Touching up the Mary Poppins costume to make it with a high collar (closer to the original version)
- Making the renaissance dress
- Maybe one more costume? I'd love to make either an Edwardian dress or a 18th century one...
And very merry Christmas (or whatever you're celebrating)to you!
