Monday Progress Update: Apr 23

Thing 1's flower dress is done except for its belt.  I'm still deciding why to do with that.

 I think I'm leaning towards this belt, but I"m still not sure.

Here's her accessories: a headband and wristlets. ; If I have time I'm going to make two more kanzashi for shoe clips.

I also finished my SF/F entry.  I added the trim to the skirt:

And made this sceptre:

All I have left is to finish the circuit for the skirt, which I'm actively avoiding.

I also did some embellishing work on my historical dress:  I added lace and bows to the stomacher:

And added trim to the skirt:

And the petticoat:

So much handsewing I rubbed my thumb raw!  I also covered my shoes:

But they still need decoration.

Since those are mostly done until my wig shipment comes in I started to work full on my Cinderella dress.


  1. You are very talented, Aurora! My daughter loves to design she needs to learn to sew....
    Just stopping by from the Challenge to say hello...


  2. OMG! I'm so glad I came across your blog. (Thank you A-Z challenge)

    Your work is beautiful. I love 18th century clothing. I'm not at your skill level, but I've made a couple of 'play' dresses for my granddaughter. It was so much fun and she loves them. :)

    I can't wait to see more.

  3. So beautiful your work! You are extremely talented and your blog is amazing with all the video training. I might not have seen this if it were not for our A to Z challenge.
