A creative persons Blog, like so many online.
Its about all the good things in life, and the interesting things. My work at Lady A design, and sometimes my other work in the theatre. The funny things that happen and the odd, its a blog that might change over time just as we do.
At uni we have to research and construct a period garment of a specific era, this year we are doing 1700 - 1800 so this will include the rococo or what most would recognize as the Marie Antoinette time. At the moment we are researching our dresses shapes and making the undergarments to suit that shape. Here is a photo of my panniers that I am finishing. there is nearly 19 meters of steel in this, all of it had to be covered and forced through the channels. 11 meters of drill at the base for box pleating. This may look simple, and it is, but it is just time consuming. :) Hopefully worth the time once it is finished. Don't worry I will up date you on the corset and other things as I go along.
my first romper suit, it is bright, sweet, and comfy. specially good for hot summer days on your bicycle :) Please note this was made for my shape not the dummies, I have a little bit more "bootee" and a longer torso this is why the bum is saggy and the straps too long. ;) Photos of me in it will come soon, (fingers crossed)
