It’s my usual refrain – I’m not dead! I’ve just been feeling strangely hermit-like. But I’m thinking about peeping my head out of my shell to talk about Costume College. My classes are nearly done, which is a good thing. Still some practicalities for the hair/makeup class to work out. What I’m going to wear is only semi-decided — I stopped working on the Florentine dress (bored with it!) and instead picked up the Daniel Deronda dress, only to have the DD dress morph into something else.
I’m sad b/c I love the dress from the film, but the fabric/design just kept tugging in another direction, so it’s now going to be my gala dress — but my hermitage has sapped my desire for online updates. So you’ll just have to be surprised! Tonight after work I have to head to Britex for ribbon, then this weekend (Fri-Sun) is going to be marathon sewing weekend. Luckily the hubby is out of town, so I can take over the house with my costume movies and make a big mess.
So that means — Thursday night: fabulous pink & black vintage 1950s dress that Trystan is going to kill me for; Friday night: Lady Maud; Saturday night: the-dress-that-used-to-be-the-Daniel-Deronda dress; Sunday morning underwear breakfast: probably my 18th c. undies; Sunday day: (for the tea) the chemise dress (I cave to peer pressure!). Civvies for Friday and Saturday days – I’m so much more comfortable teaching/going to classes in jeans plus that means I get to wake up 5 min. before breakfast.
I am getting excited about getting to hang out with all my costumer peeps, and see what you all have been sewing, and go to classes, and have pink drinks! Yay!
