I have not worked on my Revwar kit.
I have not made something suitable for a lower-class impression.
I have, however, made a move towards de-stashing my truly awe inspiring lace bin! And I've watched Firefly, Serenity, caught up with Supernatural, and started Battlestar Galactica!
And look at this cool fichu that I made! (thank goodness for snow days.)
My version has several more layers of insertion lace and, due to my lack of thin black lace, there is tasseled silk trim instead.
|The underside - a back seam and two tucks|
|And the whole, badly centered package.|
Pattern: self drafted.
Materials: Insertion lace, lace, silk trim, think silk ribbon, velvet ribbon.
Time: A very long time. At least 2 days straight of work.
What I would do differently: Uh... not do it, aheh? It took a really, really long time. But I did learn how to sew together insertion lace, as well as the value of patience. And hopefully this is going to look really nice for ECD, or wherever I get to wear it...
And now I'm going to do a lot of sewing grunt work, at least until Military History fest next weekend. Got to kit up for W&M!
