A few weekends ago as a Birthday present, my dad payed the fee for me to take a Greater Bay Area Costumers Guild millinery class. The class was focused on two styles of spoon bonnet, 1850-60's. The class was taught by Lynn Taylor. This is the same teacher/ class where I made my 18th C. Berge last year.

I was inspired by this surviving bonnet (from 1840):

So for my fabric I took some black moire I had left over from a coat I abandoned a long time ago, in a galaxy far far away...anyway. I managed to mostly finished the frame, and I did all of the mulling. I still have to sew certain parts of the fabric on before I can fully finish connecting the two "halves" of the hat.

This has been a pretty bad week (between midterms and having my computer stolen) so I decided I deserved a good break! Having gotten my sewing machine back, I put my new zipper foot to use and worked on my Civil war and regency corsets.


In an Ironic Side note, my computer got stolen right AFTER I put on the lost Decal. I guess those numbers really are CURSED...

When simplicity changed the pattern number, some kind person put the corset pattern on ebay as a buy it now auction for $4.50. The difference is that the new pattern includes bloomers, and the chemise has shorter sleeves: http://www.simplicity.com/p-1802-costumes.aspx

I'v actually had this corset cut out and ready to start sewing for about a month...but the Gussets scared me!
