I simply love the Historical Sew Monthly 2015! What a great challenge by The Dreamstress. This year I plan on joining in for the first time ever (the last three years I was working full time, in night school for my graduate degree & planning a wedding), so I FINALLY have the time, I think! My life is still a busy, crazy thing at times, but I want to try to join in these challenges these year, with the first three months up first, so without further ado, here is my plan!
- January - Foundations: make something that is the foundation of a period outfit.
- February - Colour Challenge Blue: make an item that features blue, in any shade from azure to zaffre.
- March - Stashbusting: make something using only fabric, patterns, trims & notions that you already have in the stash.
The third challenge I actually find pretty exciting, because it is a chance to focus on making something specifically that is from my stash, and I have some good fabric on hand & planned for some historical outfits, so I think I'm really going to have fun on this one. I have a few things swirling around in my head, including a new Regency ballgown for the JAF in England later this year, a new Regency spencer (short jacket) or perhaps I'll finally make my Francaise, which I have the perfect fabric & trim for, and just need the time!
Wish me luck!
