afternoon blahs

All finished with toiling - yay! The sleeve wasn’t too bad. Then again I wasn’t being too picky with it either. So I'm in the process of taking the toile apart to make my master pattern, then it's onto cutting.

I don't know the more I look at it the less I'm excited I am about this jacket. Maybe I've just been looking at it too long or I'm just tired (probably overdid a bit yesterday) or it could be my headache du jour. Mostly I think it's CADD (I really want to be working on my blue taffeta project) and a bit of disappointment I won’t be a pretty, pretty princess in a pink Venetian on Saturday. *sigh*

Saturday is the Day of Wrong at the Renn Fest which means it will be a ton of interesting outfits. I'm most likely going to go Steampunk that day myself. (It's either that or Snow White. I'm not sure yet) Just wanted to warn you before you got there and wondered why the Stormtroopers invaded...

Thanks for the warning! Looks like thunder and lots of rain on Saturday so we will be there on Sunday instead. Any chance of seeing you there? :>

I think the showers are only in the morning. I'm heading to Harper's Ferry on Sunday. :-( I want to see the fall colors while I have a chance. Have fun though!

Bummer - I'll miss seeing you! I guess I'll see you at S's tea then, right?

I think will look nice and more girly with a skirt. And you can princess it up a bit, maybe do ribbon closures and some lace? Or you can wear 18th C and be a pirate like me. ;)

I donno if you got my email but I'm rethinking Sat now - there's supposed to be rain & thunderstorms all day and chance is now at 90%. Sunday looks good tho.

Funny you should mention that... I'm seriously leaning toward pirate wench at this point. I have my pretty new plum stays and tons of petticoats to choose from...

I know I could make the jacket work but I think it's all about the accessories (a ruffly smock, a proper cap, lace) - none of which I have on hand. And you know I'm just not feeling it.

The toil looks great! Even if you dont make the jacket for Saturday, it will be a great pattern for the Bee Jacket. ;)

My thoughts exactly! :>

Yay! It's looking good. And yay sleeve! They always look better in lined with heavier fabric too :)

Thanks! It really was a pretty easy project... I can't wait to make up an embroidered one! :>
