Starting on a new sewing project!

I have been avoiding the fancy dresses of the 1870s and 1880s because they really are pretty far, time-wise from the era that Ardenwood portrays.  But just for my information I have been researching them a bit.

And then I did it.  It was actually that darn striped taffeta that did it....I am going to tackle a bustle dress!

First I have to get the right silhouette so I need a bustle petticoat.  That is the new project.


We haven't had rain since January so "red in the morning, sailors take warning" sounds great to me!  In fact I slept in Lucy (the motorhome) last night so I would hear the raindrop on the roof..... I love it.  No such luck, the rain hasn't gotten to us yet,  just the sunrise.  What a nice sewing day!
