After shopping with Sandi today and finding some great deals and ideas for new projects I decided I must finish up a few things. We went to the DFW Costume Guilds and there will be a few more costumes I want to do. I am motivated to sew Edwardian Gown, two Frocks, and something SteamPunky. SO next week I plan on finishing up my Victorian Ball Gown, Doing the gathers and more Froo froo on my Civil war gown, and Corsett. I estimate it shouldn’t take more than a day for each of them.
I been interested in history and genealogy for a long time now. After a long sewing hiatus I started making costumes for our family’s chili show team. I had the sewing mood going so I decided to make a Civil War dress. I want to wear it to My ancestor’s, Branch Trull’s re-enactment battle at Warm Springs NC where he was captured October 1864. For the past two years we have been attending Masked Balls at the Civil War History Center. I design and make both my ball gowns and my husbands long coat, vest and cravats. Which we also wear to the Dickens on the Strand event in Galveston. Now I came across this 1912 project and I am captivated by the beautiful clothes.
