another hat

So here's attempt #1 at a top-hat it looks better then in the picture I promise. How ever the leather I used was very thin so it doesn't have a lot of body to it. It has a kind of crooked disreputable look to it. Every attempt is a learning experience.…

masks and hats

My mask it pretty much done, I just have to fit the straps and probably pad the nose piece. I make at two more straps for show.



I've taken the day off to work on hats. I think i've got it figured out pretty good. I made a practice one out of muslin.

Plague mask and hats

Finished my mask pattern and got it transfered to the leather and the leather cut out. Then i found the leather die I've had in storage for 25 years is all dried up. I'll have to wait till i can get to the leather store tomorrow.



While I'm waiting I've started on the pattern for my hat. I think I'm going to start with this one...

Current Work

Have just finished a walking skirt (Folkwear 209) in brown; am trying to decide whether to add decorative embroidery somewhere along the hem or not.

 

Next piece is a corset, in brown.  It will be based on Simplicity 2890, though I am going to modify it so that it has a lining. 

 

After that, I need to figure out a shirt - maybe I should attempt making one? - and locate a good hat.  Something like a low top hat (riding hat?) with a veil could be fun.  Or a…

More News on the Garment Frontier!

*(From over the hill comes the beating clank and hiss of Rev.Hammers Immense Steam Driven Portable Cathedral and Patent Medicine Side Show. The air brakes apply with a grunt and it shudders to a stop. From somewhere in the back of the machine a pipe organ suddenly blares to life as the 2 story tall oak front doors creak open. A heavy velvet curtain is revealed. There comes a burst of acrid smoke…

What are we becoming?

Greetings to all of my dear friends and soon friends to be!

Something has come to my notice and I find it worth mentioning.

New projects and what to do with my broken glasses.

my glasses are currently slightly glued together but got me thinking. When I get my new pair that I can make steampunk glasses or maybe shape the lenses to make a pair of actual goggles that can be worn.



Though I have no idea how to go about so I guess I need to study a little bit before going ahead.



I have found a beautiful fabric for a vest. I was suppose to buy friday but my glasses broke so now I have to wait till they are repaired and I have money again. but I already… Continue
