But the best part of my weekend was getting to have dinner with my eldest son and his lovely lady.
It was a real treat.
Needless to say, I am a happy Mom.
I have decided what my next costuming project is. I definitely need some warm clothes for the Fall, and this is the perfect time to begin. Taking into account that last year I froze my patootie several times at various events, working with wool sounds like a damned good idea.
I have decided to make a kirtle, with sleeves, with a loose coat to top. That should keep me toasty while looking good. Here is a picture of the fabric I have picked:
The eggplant wool is for the kirtle, while the grey is for the loose coat. The shot dupioni is for the facing in the coat.
I have already cut the bodice and started to sew the channels. Sadly, I think I am going to unpick it because I have realized that the channels are too wide. Better to undo it right now and not wait till it is a disaster.
And that's it. I'm going to bed.
