I’m still sewing!

Flat felling an interior seam of my second shift. I had to use cotton again, but this one has narrower sleeves than my first one.

I may have cut back on a lot of projects and events, but I’m still working on things.

I’m almost finished with my second shift, and I just finished the sash for my chemise a la reine (CALR), although I might do something else to the sash later if I’m in the mood.

I still have things to make and a few things to purchase, but I’m determined to finally finish up the layers so I can wear my CALR and get some photos by an event in late July.

I also have a few other accessories for another outfit to make, and I keep thinking about some personal projects I’ve been wanting to get back to.

I originally planned on wearing the CALR for an event in November, but I don’t mind wearing it a few times.

I’m hoping to have a few other accessories finished by November, so that might make the CALR feel “new” to me again.

Here is a quick photo of the silk sash for the CALR:

Blue sash made from silk taffeta. My husband ties better bows than I do, especially on this dress form. I may go back and add something to it later, we’ll see. Sash pictured over the innermost petticoat worn under the chemise a la reine.

My husband is very busy as well, and one of the things he’s doing is a Kickstarter project for an ebook he’s wanting to re-release. I thought I’d share the link here:

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.

  1. The fabric for the sash is soooooooo cool! I know in some lighting that it seems a little more gray than blue, but once it’s up against white…even in rooms where it’s looked gray, it looks like a nice, powdery blue. It’s gonna be great once it’s all done and put together!
