But I’ve been considering adding a special frock to my wardrobe for a while. I love pretty gowns. Years ago, I used to sit up watching the American Awards shows, not for the TV shows or Movies, but for the gorgeous gowns on the red carpet. I had lots of favorites and pet hates at those things. I love simple elegance and hate floofy meringues.
Guess what came in the mail this week. Ta Da!
The pattern looks relatively easy, although I’ve never been particularly good at fitting myself. May have to enlist mum’s help (she can sew circles around me).
This could either be really good for my stress levels or the absolute worst. Before I can start, I need to decide style (day or evening wear), check the pattern will actually fit me, then find and choose fabric that hopefully will be close to period appropriate.
Have you ever made a period costume? If so, I’d love to hear any tips you care to share. I’ll update my progress on the gown next month.
Until then. Wish me luck.
