Let us begin the sewing nonsense for 2013

19 Feb

Two hundred days after buying fabric, I’ve finally started sewing for the 2013 faire season. We moved in between those things, though, and I read a bunch, and also I spent a lot of time daydreaming about moving to a tropical island where it will never be cold, so don’t look at me like I haven’t been doing anything.

Items I have to make, in order:

  • new shirts – 2 (always two underlayers!)
  • new pants
  • new cape (yes, again)
  • fancy plumage for hat
  • new sleeves (…this may not be a “have to,” but I put it here to encourage less procrastination)

Items I might make, depending on how the above items go, in order:

  • partlets – 2 (always two underlayers!)
  • new bodice – doublet style!
  • new corset with fancy front part

Gosh, biscuit, when you put it that way it doesn’t seem like so much work at all*.

*yes it does

    Yep, that sounds about right. My husb is on cast at Scarborough Faire this year, and is already in rehearsals, so I have been appointed Head Hellbeast Sewist, grrrr.

      Fun! I’ll be at Scarby too. We’ve got…what, a month and a half? Totally enough time. Right?

        Sure we do! Yeah! Absolutely . . . wait. Hmmm. I hope so. Hmm.

        (I’m not necessarily sewing a lot of garb for myself this year, opting to concentrate on Sir’s faire wardrobe, which has been a total pain in the arse so far.)

    Be sure to sew something in purple so it goes with your amethyst parure!

      My wedding dress was actually purple, so on the glorious day when that parure is mine, I’m going to wear it with that. :D
