I've been so bad about updating this LJ lately - and replying to your entries. I read them, really I do, I just haven’t had the time to reply lately. In my defense I've been out of town a crazy amount and this week I've been feeling under the weather. Lots of headaches and general ickiness. I have a busy weekend ahead of me so I've been taking it easy the past few days in the thought that if I baby myself a bit I'll feel up to the weekend activities. So far all I feel like is behind in everything. Oh well. :P
All the vegging about and watching Duchess of Duke Street has lead to getting quite a bit of quilting though on the petticoat. It's looking so good! This morning I switched focus and marked out the bottom lines so I can get the bottom finished off. I thought it would be easier to measure the length that way. I was going to wait until I'd sewn the panels together to hem it but I think I won't now. I think the idea of two complete panels sewn together in case I ever want to take them apart for another purpose. Whatever that purpose may be. *evil grin*
Looks like I will be waiting to see MA until next weekend (so all spoilers behind cuts if you please!). bauhausfrau and some of her friends are going in costume next Saturday so I'll go with them. Should be fun, the weekend before Halloween no less. :>
I'm going to wear my green ball gown with BIG hair. :> I need to add some more trimming (I think I'll make it a fake "zone front") and something at the sleeves. A new (and properly fancy) petticoat would be fun but I don't know that I will have time for that.
