I think I have guilted myself out of sewing the Stripe High waisted Pants. I don't know how to really explain this, but it's a combo of several things I have had floating around in my head the past few weeks. The black Pair is completely done, so my School requirement is completely met once I finish the Jodhpurs. The stripy-ness was just for fun, and because I love stripes!

The one kink to this? I already ordered the stripe duck and can't return it. As far as new uses...I have been thinking corded petticoat? I have my romantic corset all cut out, so making a corded petti would come after that. A class I saw advertised online recommended using striped fabric. The finished result would be very Colleen Atwood-esque, and covered by other skirts anyway.
Other possible projects could be a Corset, Bustle, or save the fabric for the Jackets Section of my pattern making course. All of these I have a much less immediate use for than the Quilted petti, which is why they are second in my mind.

Ug, sewing the lining in these pants the other day took forever. It was the height of my sickness and my brain couldn't handle hand-sewing apparently :( On the bright side the Shiny-ness and Stripy-ness of it makes me incredibly amused. I really wish I had more of this fabric (It was a scrap from a dress I made while back) if I had more of it I would use it to line EVERYTHING! It's cotton, and you can't feel the metallic threads at all, that is, they are not scratchy.



And Now I take a deep breath and return to making Flats. The worse Illustrator flaw ever?? Crashing while saving, so you LOSE EVERYTHING!!!

I finally finished one of the Knit garments I cut out forever ago. It took me a while because I needed to mark the fringe while I was wearing it (to avoid puckering) and then I had to hand stitch it all down. Photos. )
I also uploaded some detail Pictures of the 18th Century hair style I did for the GBACG Open house: http://www.flickr.com/photos/48512843@N04/sets/72157625918756539/
In them you can see the padding, as well as the fake bits pretty well.

AND now back to homework, break time is over.
