Overlay for 1912 Gown

This is for Kayle’s 1912 gown. I totally splurged on it but I got a deal at the same time (it was the last 3 yards on the bolt & they gave me a discount on the amount over what I originally asked for). It’s just a white towel under it to show the colors.

The Trim Fairy

A very lovely lady offered to buy our trim for us as long as we reimbursed her for the cost of the trim & shipping. Today, I got my package from my trim fairy (a.k.a. Pamela) and it’s lovely. But it actually goes with both blues I have in my stash – the periwinkle and the shell blue.

Thanks again, Pamela!

Big day for my mail box

My mail box was stuffed today – 3 slips of paper stating I had packages to pick up.

I had bought a huge wall print (actually 8 prints) of the characters from Nurarihyon no Mago for my otaku daughter, Kayle. It’s fantastic!

I also got my order of coutil from tutu.com. I only ordered 2 yards, hopefully that will be enough for 2 corsets. I still need to get busks and boning.

And the last item was another prop for Mary Poppins. After all, she has to have something for a spoon, right?

(The spoon came last week.)

Mary Poppins’ Costume Update

My umbrella arrived today from the Disney Store & I love it! It’s heavy for an umbrella and made of cotton instead of nylon.

There was a change of plan on my fabric for MP’s costume. The fabric I ordered from fabric.com was out of stock by the time they went to cut mine. So, I’m going with a nice cotton. I still need to pick up my skirt pattern from Fabrique! (a local fabric store that sells Folkwear patterns). And I have the apron pattern, so I may start with her apron look instead of what she flys in wearing.
