Getting Organized – I’m Back!

I swear it – I’m back! I’m organized! I’m sewing! I have plans and accomplishments to report! First, I was getting depressed reading everyone’s lengthy lists of what-I-accomplished-in-2007, but then realized I wasn’t a total slacker ALL year (just the last few months – performing at a billion faires sucked all my energy). I made:

  • Recovered my 18th c. stays
  • 1860s Meg March dress
  • 1780s gaulle à la Polignac
  • 1870-71 evening gown
  • 1540s Florentine gown
  • 1850s lower class ensemble (Bet’s Dickens Fair costume)
  • This year’s costuming priorities are:

  • Secret Costume Con historical masquerade entry
  • 1760s mourning robe à la française for the GBACG exhibit at Costume Con (and will be posting an update about this today).
  • 1560s Venetian gown – finally found fabric for this! Yay, as Caterina sorely needs a new dress after wearing the same one for three years. Haven’t decided on a design yet, though.
  • After that, it’ll probably be the 1909 suit and a Tudor dress, but I’m not committing to anything.

    In site housekeeping news, I’ve added the Bet costume to the Victorian gallery, and finally gotten off my butt and added an RSS feed to the main page. Boring info for RSS people — that link should work if you are logged into your news reader, or using Explorer/Safari, but it won’t work if you’re in Firefox AND not logged in to your newsreader. You can also just copy & paste that link into your news reader. Because each project page is technically a separate blog, you’ll get the posts made to the main page, with the read more links to the full project posts. Let me know if you find any problems with the RSS feed.
