Actually, because of performing at the Dickens Fair! I’ve been having a blast this year, having really hit my stride with my character. I did make a new skirt, and I posed in one Dark Garden (corset shop) window last weekend, and am doing another tomorrow morning – so I will have pictures soon! This weekend is the last, and then it’s Christmas break. While I plan to catch up on sleep and other useful things, I’m also going to get a bit of sewing done too!
I’m excited because I’m going to be going to the SCA West Kingdom 12th Night, especially because I get to hang with my costume peeps who I haven’t seen in a while. I’ll be wearing my new Venetian, and I need to let down the skirt in front as it ended up a bit too short (which means re-cartridge pleating the sucker). MAYBE I could make the partlet and girdle that I’ve planned for that outfit in time? We’ll see. Then in late February is GBACG’s Tudor Feast — I’ve decided instead of killing myself to make a Tudor dress in time, or just not going, I’m going to use this as a perfect opportunity to unpick all the trim on my Florentine so I can fix the evil bodice wrinkles. Hey, it’s 1540s! I’m hoping I can get both things done over break so I can start the new year with a fresh slate of brand new projects!
