I have been sewing, I swear! But the things I'm making are for an event in May and I don't want to give it all away, so no piccies. Booo hisss, I know. I want to report that I made the bloomers from the Simplicity 2777 - view D - and they turned out SO CUTE!! I love that they have a flat waistband in front so you don't feel like a walking balloon. I loved them so much I wore them all day. Must make more for summertime everyday wear.

Today I'm working on the 1874 black day dress I posted about a bit ago. I'm calling it my "Lost Souls" dress because it's huge and black trimmed with black with absolutely no relief. So today I'm going over to Beth's in Delaware to make pleats. This gown requires like 12 rows of pleats and I know that making two for a scanty little natural form era gown drives me crazy. I'm having an eye tick at the thought of making twelve for the huge circumference of an early bustle gown with a train. Beth swears we can make 'em quick with her antique pleater tool, and such a task is always less painful to do with a friend. So hopefully we'll get a few rows of pleats knocked out today.

OK, have to get dressed and haul my serger and sewing machines to the car. Everyone have a nice day!
