It has been brought to my attention *cough*rachel*cough* that I have been neglecting this space quite shockingly. Apparently there are people who need to be kept updated about my goings-on. My deepest apologies to the three of you. I'll try to do better.
Pride and Prejudice is now three weeks away from opening night. I've been sewing costumes from morning to night, and practicing my lines, and sewing more costumes, and then thinking of more things to sew. I love costumes!
I made this bonnet following the excellent instructions at the Oregon Regency Society blog.
I cut up a wee straw bonnet (99 cents at the thrift store), and covered it with blue silk (a sari shawl from Value Village), and lined it with a lovely cotton-silk fabric (a dress I found at the SallyAnn). The crown took 3 attempts before I was satisfied with it - oh, the frustration!
So, that's what I've been up to. Now you know.
