White Linen & Word Shortage

I keep running out of white linen, and it's not exactly easy to come by around here.  So many caps and shifts have been happening lately!  I'm so exhausted though I think that's really all I can write for now. :)  Happy sewing!

Almost Autumn OR Forget Pumpkin Everything, I Need a Nap

It's truly amazing how quickly time goes by when you barely have time to breathe!  July was the worst: reenactments and market set-ups every week, sewing constantly and feeling like I'm getting nowhere, etc.  August, I'm realizing, has basically not existed.  I feel like it just started, and yet here I am staring at September in a few days!  Honestly?  Good riddance, August.  I need a break!

One of my 1950s aprons--heading to my Etsy as soon as I get a minute!

HSM: April, May, June, & July 15

Playing Catch-up!  I managed to submit all of these on time through the Facebook group (and May's challenge snuck into my last post) but I'm still *attempting* to document my challenge progress here!

April: War & Peace 

Initially, I was going to make my husband's new regimental coat--but then I ran out of time.  This is an ongoing theme of my summer!

1770s Robe a l'Anglaise (and The Poofy Purple Petticoat)

I've been so busy, this seems to be the permanent state of my car:

I also just realized this is the first proper-ish picture of the stays I made!

Good heavens, what a bad blogger I am! A whole month escaped without a single post. :( Oh, May... it's been real but I'm glad you're gone. What a crazy few weeks!

The one really good thing about being behind on posts is that I have loads of pictures to share.  So...

Warning: Picture Heavy.

Five Thousand Projects Under the Sewing Machine

Happy Friday!  I am frantically getting ready for my first craft fair, and not taking many pictures along the way. So, instead of talking about my progress, I'm just going to share my inspiration board for my current projects. Lazy, yes, but cute things!

Follow C's board Vintage-ish Kids on Pinterest.

Allaire Village Reenactment 2015

I apologize for the delay--I know Tuesday is not Friday, but I have an excuse! We had a marvelous weekend at Allaire and it was really, really hard going back to "real life" yesterday.  My brain is currently all fuzzed up from allergies (thank you, nature!) so that wasn't helping.

Of course, picture evidence...
