Updates on Various Things

Dear me, it's been far too long since I posted anything. I've been working on things, just not blogging about them. A lot of the things I've been sewing were for school, which ended just a couple of weeks ago.
Anyhow, here are some updates on various projects.
The frock coat has sleeves, pockets and pocket flaps and I'm working on interfacing the lining.
 I started making a hand sewn linen shirt.
And I'm also working on a nightgown using this lovely linen that came with an embroidered border.
I have received three extant Edwardian garments, which I will be doing individual posts on.
I've worked on the black linen waistcoat some more. Here is one of the facings being attached to the lining.
And I made a corset for my corseting class, which I don't have any pictures of because it's still at school. The above picture is the fabric I used, isn't it gorgeous?

I've made another version of the pants pattern too, which I'm very excited to sew up, but I haven't started on it yet because I'd like to finish at least one other garment first. I'm absolutely terrible about starting projects and not finishing them.
I think that's about it for now. I haven't been very productive with my own sewing projects lately. There are some new portraits on my DeviantART page though.

  1. As ever very professional garments. You are lucky to have such good teachers who pass their knowledge on to you. Natalie
