Plaid Reticule for In-Progress Bustle Gown

I decided to make a quick reticule for a bustle gown I’m trying to have finished for an event in May.

I used a Simplicity pattern before, and decided to use it again with some changes. I’m pleased with the results, but I’m looking forward to seeing how I like using it. I tend to carry a few too many things still, but I’ve already simplified enough — I’m having fun testing out various reticule styles and sizes to see what I like best.

I also realized, my accessory drawer is filling up!

Check out the link below to see the photos and information. Now, off to do some sewing — I’m going to be very busy! Lots of events coming up, and lots of things to finish!


About Cynthia Griffith

I have way too many interests and hobbies, and continually cycle through them -- paying attention to some, while others wait for when I can get around to them again. My main interests are sewing and costuming (I enjoy historical clothing, such as 18th and 19th century, as well as fantasy costumes like elves and hopefully someday even dwarves), as well as getting back to art by drawing fan art of Thorin Oakenshield and Company. My husband Christopher and I spend a lot of time together, enjoying the outdoors and shared hobbies such as juggling. This blog and website is my way to share what I'm up to with friends and family.
