Not a lot of posting last week, but mind you, not because of idleness, just because I didn't have a proper internet connection where I was staying. But now I'm back to our home and I will tell you some new stuff about what I've been doing.
I've practically finished the Elizabethan gown, pics coming soon. We didn't take the sewing machine with us so I just did minor stuff by hand. Everything is prepared to be sewn during the next few days so, as said before, pics coming soon.
I also started a new project because I had the time; again, just things done by hand. I'm in love with the outfit Laure Richis (from Perfume) wears during the garden scene, so I decided to make an 18th century outfit inspired by the one in the film:
It's this light teal jacket with a cream skirt. These are the fabrics I'm using (both taffeta):
The lace is for the sleeves and the ribbons as a decoration.
And this is how the pocket hoops look with a petticoat made of the same fabric as the skirt you are seeing in the pic. I still have to rearrange the pleats, it's not sewn yet! But I'm very happy with the result so far.
