Hello. I realized recently that I had missed the 2 year anniversary of this blog, so I apologize for posting this late. As usual, I've been busy with school and neglected this blog even though I have no shortage of posting material.
So, here's some of what I made in 2014. (I'm not counting unfinished projects this time, and unfortunately I have a lot more unfinished projects than finished ones.)
My denim frock coat is awesome and I love it, but I wish I had used a more slippery lining for the sleeves.
spiral pants are nice enough, aside from the fact that I messed up the pattern alterations and the waist is a uncomfortably tight. I've worn them maybe five times.
these watch fobs and will probably take them apart and re- make them.
corset has pretty fabric, but it doesn't fit properly at all. Not that I care. I'm never going to wear it.
my linen shirt very much! A couple of the button holes have stretched a little, but that's the only complaint I have with it.
the white cravat. I wear it fairly regularly and should make a couple more.
fur trimmed waistcoat! Their old fabric backs are tearing through and I need to replace them. It's bulky and weird, but very warm.
|Curse those horrible chest lumps that ruin the line of my waistcoat.|
plain black pants almost every day, and they're starting to wear out.
cotton shirt is probably the one I wear most often.
Looking at all my finished projects together, it seems pretty pathetic. I really, really need to finish the things I start sewing. My unfinished project pile is getting out of control. Of course, I have been sewing a lot of things for school (mostly mockups) and will have to have 7 complete outfits made up by April 11th.
I'm taking a bookbinding class too! It's fun. We're only three classes in, so we haven't gotten to hardcovers yet.

|It has Gothic arches with bats on the inside cover.|
I've done a fair amount of drawings too, though have not posted them anywhere.

Now I need to go work on the waistcoat that's been sitting on my chair for a month.
