Projects 2013

So I have still been working on projects, even though I haven’t been posting. Here’s the list so far this year.

Two pairs of corded stays. I decided to give them a whirl. They are perfect for outdoor activities. Although they are a bit too casual for evening.

It was that time again… time to remake my white muslin gowns. They last about 2-3 years, if I’m lucky. The old ones were ratty and had definitely seen better days.

The pleated open robe of doom! I loved making this robe and I’m quite pleased with the pleats.

A silk metallic organza open robe with antique silver trim worn for a very special occasion… More on that in the near future.

And finally, a waistcoat, banyan, breeches, and shirt for my dad. My parents came to visit us a few weeks ago and attending a card party with us in kit. There will be more on that later as well.

Well, that’s all for now. There will be more posts coming in the near future. Enjoy and God Bless!!!

Love Lauren

I love that platted dress. It reminded me of Pnina Tornai Wedding Dresses that I came across while browsing wedding collection for my wedding.
