I have decided that year I will only sew Fun Stuff.
OK, I will need to make tons of medieval clothes for my three growing girls before we go to Visby Medieval week and there are also some things that need to be fixed on the pavilion. I also want to make my husband a new 16th century, outfit, the current on is no good, so that we can wear the same time period.
But for me I will only sew things that I want
to make, regardless if I have somewhere to wear them or not. I have all the mundane skirts any woman could need, and quite a few more, and I Do Not Need More Medieval/Renaissance Garb! I have maybe 30 outfits (I don't dare to count), some of them worn only once, so I really think I should wear some of them again. I will make some small things; like a partlet, a forepart or a pair of sleeves, or a new hat, but I don't need any more tunics/dresses/gowns. Or shifts or veils.
So I will make mostly other periods I think. I will not make a list of what I plan to do, since the whole point is to make whatever I feel like (without succumbing to CADD, I plan to finish the costumes). But I will make list of things that I feel like doing. In no particular order:
* Cotton print empire dress and another bonnet, possibly the jockey model, or one with a brim with gathered fabric.
* New 16th c "working kirtle"
* scarf and lace edge for cap for my folk costume
* Something more from the 18th century, probably a cotton print jacket to wear with a skirt I already have. And a smaller lace cap.
* My Hedvig-outift. It's from a children's TV-programme from the 70s. I can't find a picture, but it's a tartan knee-length trouser skirt that also covers the torso and has braces. It also has a cardigan in knit, but with big puffy sleeves to the elbow, the lower sleeves are knit, and a sailor collar in tartan.
* Something from the New Ideas Quarterly
that jenthompson webbed
recently. Something with checks I think, maybe the one on plate six, or twenty-five.
The last two are itching most now.
