almost there
Well I'm not going to be able to finish the Faire Garb tonight like I wanted to.*sigh* It's almost 1:30am already and I'm getting very sleepy. My hands are also starting to cramp. So close!

The corded bodice binding has taken MUCH longer than I thought/hoped it would. Those wretched tabs. I'm about ¾ of the way done with the bottom (tab) end. So I have just a bit of the bottom left and all the top. I also need to make a new eyelet hole in the corded bodice (so they are even again) and trim my hat.

I was sort of hoping I might be able to throw a quick fan together tomorrow. I wanted something similar to this, as the feather one I made last year is too much with this outfit. There is no way it will happen now with company to pick up, fake hair to curl/braid, errands to run, so much hand sewing left to do and an early rack time tomorrow night. Umm... I probably should vacuum before my company comes too. There are threads and snips of ribbon everywhere. :>

I'll just have to deal with a non-period folding fan. Oh well. Next year, right? :>

Aw, poor, poor Jenny. Just take a deep breath and think happy thoughts. If you need me to help with any of sewing, all you have to do is point me in the direction of needle and thread, and I'll be happy to do it! :)

I think next year we should have a fan making party well before the Faire--that way both of us can have nice, period fans for a change. (I have much to tell you about the flag fan saga, something happened last night that could potentially ruin it. :\)
