This is the blouse and corset i will be wearing with the skirt pictured previously. (and now everyone has a face to put with me.)
below are a couple of hats for friends. The first is a practice hat. Made out of odds and ends to check pattern sizing. (why don't pattern companies do extra-large? Oh well. I successfully re sized existing patterns to get what I wanted.)
The second Hat I reworked to dress up and put in wire for support of the shape.
The red hat went from being a tricorne to a bicorne.
It did not really sink in how big a 15 inch tote bag would be until I had it cut out and started sewing it together. It has six outer pockets and four inner pockets. The base is 11 inches by 13 inches. I don't know what I will use it for. I found the Peacock fabric at the thrift store and wanted to make a bag.
