What I made in March 2011

stays

Regency Stays

Fabric
: Cotton
Patterns:
Sense & Sensibility
Time to complete:
3 hours
First worn:
March 2011
Wear again?
Not in the next future

I finally finished my Regency stays. In the end they were not so complicated as I thought. If they really are better for the fit of my Regency dresses I am not sure. But it was fun to wear them, although I had the feeling, that I got neck ache from them.

Regency Dress and Bonnet

Fabric: Red silk (leftover from my Rococo garment)
Patterns:
Sense & Sensibility and Timely Tresses
Time to complete:
10 hours
First worn:
March 2011
Wear again?
Not for the next year, I think

I don´t like the dress so much. I think the other option of the pattern looks much better. But it was fun to wear nevertheless. When I finished the bonnet and tried it on, I didn´t like it at all. But with the right hair style it looks adorable. I really love it.

60s Dress

Fabric: Green wool-like fabric
Patterns:
Butterick 4699
Time to complete:
3 hours
First worn:
-

Oh, don´t ask me, what I think of this dress. I really don´t know. The pattern seemed so fun and adorable, but the finished dress is not so wearable. I think it looks like the aprons my Grandmother wears. So this will be a wear at home dress. I like it nonetheless. Bought the fabric because I wanted to use up the bias tape from the Walk-away-dress.

Walk-Away-Dress

Fabric: Cotton
Patterns:
Butterick 4790
Time to complete:
4 hours
First worn:
March 2011
Wear again?
Yes

The famous Walk-away-dress. I like the look a lot. It´s so feminine. But walking is a bit difficult. Or maybe that´s only me. I really like this dress, from the sewing to the end result. It´s really easy to make.

Simplicity Skirt

Fabric: Green wool-like fabric
Patterns:
Simplicity 2512
Time to complete:
2 hours
First worn:
March 2011
Wear again?
Yes

I had so much left over from the 60s dress and the red bias tape that I could make a skirt out of it. The pattern was fun to make again. And I think I will wear the skirt more often than the dress.

Lindsey Cape

Fabric: Wool
Patterns:
Burdastyle
Time to complete:
4 hours
First worn:
March 2011
Wear again?
Yes

The pattern was hate. I have problems with Burda patterns every time.So this will be the last for a while. Nevertheless it was a quick project. I bought the fabric and made the cape on the same day. I really like to wear it. Maybe you saw this on my Me-Made-March photos.

40s Bolero

Fabric: Cotton
Patterns:
Simplicity 2020
Time to complete:
2 hours
First worn:
-

Originally I bought the fabric for my Regency stays, but I had enough corset fabric over for them. So I made this little number out of the white cotton. I think you can never have too many boleros for summer. The pattern is from the 40s. I still have to get used to the shoulders. But I think it will look good with my summer dresses (and the ones I plan to make).

Ratatouille Bag

Fabric: Cotton
Patterns:
some free pattern
Time to complete:
1 hour

I made this for a classmate. She saw my shopping bag of the same fabric and asked if I could make her one if she buys the material. And she likes her own so much, that she asked me to make another one.
