Or, many balls in the air!
So, in about 3 weeks, providing volcanos and other acts of nature cooperate, I’m going to England! Woot! A group of friends are renting a 16th c. house in the countryside, and playing dress up for three days straight. Following that, it’s off to Cornwall, Dorset, and Devon to see historic houses and costume museums (Blaise Castle and Killerton) for me; seaside Victoriana, anything miniature, and steam strains for the husband.
So I’ve been sewing a lot in preparation, but jumping among projects, which is making posting seem hard! The costume wardrobe plans are: the Gothic Fitted/Pre-Raphaelite dress, Michael’s 1560s outfit, the green Venetian, and a 1770s polonaise (yet to chronicled). I’m sewing madly to get everything finished in time, and then it’ll be on to figuring out how to pack it all!
