Anyways, I'm happy to be home. I didn't get around to making a late 60's beach outfit or bathing dress like I'd dreamed about last summer, but that's because in a week, I'm going to Massachusetts for an interpretative internship! I'm really excited. But the lake is beautiful at this time of year, so I pulled out my 1840s jacquard that never got a good photo shoot. I rediscovered my love of photoediting, which hopefully explains the gratuitous filters.
I would ideally have a nice 1840's bonnet to go, but I don't have an event to go to that would necessitate making one. I'm accessorizing with anachronistic pieces; a late 60s tilting parasol and lace shawl. But I wanted to show them off!
|Hey, that's a nice ol' lake over there, ain't it|
As I wrote in my official post for this dress, it's a silk jacquard I got from my summer job, lined in cotton, done in a mid-late 1840s style. Amazingly it still fits perfectly after a year, although it could have benefitted from an ironing (and the hem front still needs to be taken up! egads!)
If y'all want to use one of these for a gothic romance novel, at least ask me first.
I hope you all have a great summer! I have some choice projects to share with you and I look forward to seeing what you all have put your hands to.
