18th Century Riding Habit (part 1)
Yes, it’s summer but I’m planning to make a wool riding habit. I have some lovely light blue wool that’s been in my stash for a few years and I finally figured out what to do with it.
I found this pattern for a riding habit.
Toadstool Footstool (Mushroom Pouf)
Project: Toadstool Footstool
I wanted a cute footstool, but didn’t want to spend any money on it, so here’s how I made one using stuff I had around the house.
Hello! I’m a fabric junkie interested in historical costuming and household crafts. I’ve sewn Victorian, medieval, Regency and 50s, but my current interest is 18th century.
Sometimes I get asked, “how did you do that?” or I try to remember “how did I fix that problem?”
This blog is part dress diary, part reminders for my future self.
Follow along as I work on reducing my fabric stash, feature some past projects and post an occasional tutorial.
