Sorry for the complete silence over here! I've been working on a lot of small projects for both work and play and haven't had any time or energy to post them.
Here's my silly SADD project - I uncovered, recovered and decorated what once was a pink dupioni drawn bonnet and turned it into something a little more befitting its high fashion shape. I used a bit of silk remnant, some pieces of antique lace I thought I'd never find a use for, and the silk ribbons I made to put on my not-entirely-1860-appropriate straw bonnet form. The result is a delightfully silly piece of high-fashion headwear that I can't want to wear to Douglas Day v. 3!

|And of course I forgot to take out the basting stitches.... psssht|
If you have any questions about the bonnet, please ask away!
In the interim, I'm working on constructing a big 1870s gown with all the trimmings and ruffles for a friend, and after that, who knows what I'll be doing?
Probably a lot of muslin caps, if we're being honest.
(I did get a summer job at Vogue, though. 30% employee discount.)
Hope all my readers are having a lovely (warm) summer!
