Just a Little Peek :)

Here’s a little peek on what I’m working on. It is a dull lavender satin halter dress. It will have a full skirt with some contrasting tulle. Fun, fun, fun!

Please excuse Belinda. She needs a tan so badly, I just draped her in tan fabric so her lobsterness wouldn’t drown out my bodice.

Trying New Things

I’m dabbing in a couple of new things. I have a severe love for historical and vintage style clothing and accessories. So I’ve decided to try my hand at hats, cloches, with embellishments. This started because I’m planning a 30s Hollywood Glam night with my friends and of course, I’ll make my own gown. But I’ve had lots of trouble finding the appropriate style hat a) in my size, and b) for less than $150; so I must learn how to do it.

I got a book on 30s fashions and I’ve been playing with hat styles, just sort of trying to get construction down. A good friend gave me a Nicky Epstein calendar for Christmas and it focuses on flower embellishments. So here are my first attempts, not great, but I understand what I’m doing now. So Callidora may have some fun hats with embellishments soon 🙂 ssshhhhh! Who knows what the future holds.
