So, in keeping with my new position, I'm going to need some awesome headwear. I've always wanted an excuse to make this particular hood...crown...thing. Not quite sure what it qualifies as, but it's shiny and I want it. I've been told to wear something on my head that is 'appropriately queenly'. Lots of pearls and jewels, it is!
I'm also toying with the idea of making myself something large, shiny, and late-period to wear, but I haven't decided yet. But there will be ruffs! Big, fabulous ruffs.
In other news, I've been moderately productive on the black bustle gown today. I spent the entire day on a ruffle. Yup, just the one. I have the feeling that I may just be sick of pleats by the time I'm finished with this dress. But, as was the case with the petticoat, I have now run out of thread...again. And I'm still determined not to leave the house this weekend. So, guess what that means...big shiny headdress! I'll be working on that tomorrow, and hopefully be finishing it, as well, since I should have most of the supplies on hand. It'll feel good to start and finish something in the same day, I need to see something complete and not just be surrounded by projects that seem to be perpetually in-progress. So, anyway, I'll hopefully have some headdress pics to share tomorrow!
Edit: I actually wrote this post last night, and then, as the weather is wont to do here in Texas, a storm popped up in the backyard and knocked out the power. >.< So pardon the past tense, this was all written yesterday!
