2009 Plans

Even though Dickens Fair is about to suck my life’s blood until Christmas, I’m starting to think about 2009 sewing — and I’m strangely unsure what I’m going to do! Do I want to rush to make a Tudor dress for the GBACG Tudor Family Reunion in late February? (Well, yes, I want a Tudor dress, but do I want to commit to a huge project in two months? Not sure). I know I want to make my 1660s Nell Gwyn dress (but the cost of the fabric is making me drag my feet), and a soon-to-be-unveiled plan for a really rocking late 18th c. dress — both of those for Costume College.

Really, if I’m going to noodle on something, I should pick back up one of my in-progress costumes (particularly my Edwardian suit), but it’s hard to want to work on those with no specific place to wear them coming up. I could be ridiculously practical and work on my Gatsby dress, so I’m ready with months to go and actually GO to the event this year… Hmmm! It’s not like I don’t have a huge list of plans for costumes I want to make. Really, I should go look at the stash and see what I can make without buying more fabric.

    Is the 1790s interestingly pleated dress in your ‘someday’ list the same one as is currently in the Your Wardrobe Unlock’d make-along contest? I voted for that one, although it’s not doing too well at the moment. I’d love to see your version though!

    Kate: yes it is! Altho I’ll be even less inclined to get around to it if everyone else is going to be making it… I may need a Regency day dress this year, so I’ll think about it!
