CADD Strikes Again…

Dear Friends and Readers,

Firstly, thank you all so much for your sweet comments. I love blog land :-)

Secondly, I have some costume plans and changes in the works (laughs evilly a rubs hands). I’m going to try my hand at the mid 1790’s. You see, I have an event in January that I will be singing at again. Now, singing in a full pair of stays was ok since I only sang one song. However, this upcoming event I will be singing three songs through out the evening, and eating dinner in between. So, the longs stays are just not going to work. Singing on empty, no problem, but combine that with food and long stays, uhuh. So, it’s on to the late, late Georgian and very early, early Regency I go. I’m going to be doing a few things. I need a new mini me “Lady D” hair and some new dresses. So this is what will be in the works for the next few projects. Sorry, the JP Ryan stays are going to be on hold for a little while. But I do promise I will make them. Here are some pics what is to come…

Oh I am so excited to see what you come up with! The inspiration is beautiful and I think your hair would look lovely like the photo. :) Have a wonderful Sabbath!

Funny, I was going to ask if singing was *easier* with full stays, because of the... support for the tummy, but I guess I got an answer!

All is well in the ends - you get to make an gorgeous late 18th c gown and it'll be fabulous!

Oh YAY! Welcome to the wonderful world of the 1790s, Open Robes, and cross-front round gowns!!!

you go, girl! I am jealous as I have not had time to start my 1790's costume yet. I plan to play the harp in mine, and am anxious to get going!
Best wishes,

PS: love the hair!
