I Am Incredibly Boring

I’ve been slammed at work, so have very little energy to sew or be costumey or come up with interesting content for this here site! In a desperate attempt to post something, I offer:

Charles A. Whitaker Auctions is having another one of their pesky costume sales — only one gallery is up, so check back later for more images.

I bought some beautiful silk brocade (well, we hope — it hasn’t arrived yet) on ebay, which will be perfect to make Henriette de Nevers’s dress from Queen Margot.

Two weeks ago the GBACG had our open house, which was ever so much fun. I wore my stripey Regency dress and spencer in the fashion show. Sarah at Mode Historique got some good pictures.

Saturday night I’m going to the PEERS Mardi Gras ball; planning to wear my green robe a la francaise plus an appropriately Carnivale-colored mask. Wondering if I can do something with a veil to make my costume more interesting.

I did cut out and sew together a mockup of my 1910 wings of the dove dress, but haven’t done enough to warrant posting.

La la! I am boring!
