Costume Planning for 2014

This is a tentative list of items I’d like to complete next year. Looking at this all typed out it seems a little ambitious, so I’ll have to see how much I get done!

Navy Regency pelisse and matching bonnet

I have all the materials and I cut out the pieces, but stopped when the event (GBACG Tall Ships Adventure) I was making the set for got cancelled. Then I got too busy with work and baby things.

Deadline: TBA

1830s Romantic ballgown

The group of ladies who did the Gibson Girl dresses last year have decided our theme for the April Gaskell Ball is 1830s. I am planning to use the Truly Victorian 455 pattern.

Vintage 1940s AAGBPL baseball uniform

I haven’t decided on a team, but it will be something cute and comfortable to wear for Saturday classes at Costume College.

Deadline: CoCo 2014 (August 1-4, 2014)

18th century court gown

This is for the Saturday night ball at Costume College. I have no idea whether I will make something from scratch or reworking this gown if I run out of time.

Pastel Regency gown

There is an ice cream social at CoCo, and I would like to wear something that has a dessert color scheme.

Fancy bloomers

I already have a corset, and need some spiffy bloomers for the “Sunday Undies” breakfast at CoCo.

Fantasy Tea outfit

Most likely I will recycle an existing outfit for the tea party at CoCo, but with some new accessories if I have time. I may wear my silk 18th century-inspired cream outfit.
