I’ve figured out that I can trick myself to get sewing quicker if I make an accessory. Plus, it’s a nice way to freshen up an old outfit you never wear anymore, right?
This took me a handful of days to make. I used lightweight materials — but it’s all from my stash. Gotta love that! How nice, to actually have something in my stash that I can use. Ha! I’ve been a little envious of people who have good stuff to dig through, while I always feel like I need to stock up on good basics and never have enough of any of that kind of thing. Sometimes it’s also nice to have an event that’s not period-specific.
In fact, it’s fantasy.
I’m trying to get a costume together for a fairy picnic coming up, and I want to be an elf again. I thought it might be fun to use an old gown I never wear anymore. It also might be a little more trail-friendly so I can wander around without having to worry about long, flowing, sheer sleeves and a train. 😉
But at least I’m keeping busy!
