Well, I got my husband the civil war uniform pattern from McCall's for his some-day Steampunk wardrobe. We haven't sewn for SCA or anything else in years, sigh. He got me a truckload of period cookery resources, but the next MC&T isn't gonna' be out until Feb or some-such. A whole buncha' stuff will be arriving next year, apparently.
That's OK. I actually got my old-carpal-buzzy-nerveless fingers to do a couple of repairs on his everything-work-vest, very short stretches of very plain stitching, but now the saggy SAGGY front pocket is now looking much more respectable, as the velcro strips on both sides of the closure are actually attached! Hmm, next maybe I'll tackle the other hem on his new shop coverall, he got one done and distracted… We also have a replacement everything-vest "safari coat" remodel to finish. If we can. Have taken it apart, ready to re-make, but… that was a couple of months ago. We may be in trouble… oh well. looking forward to seeing what you all are doing! chimene On Dec 25, 2015, at 10:42 AM, Lavolta Press <f...@lavoltapress.com> wrote: > My husband gave me the following books: > > The First Book of Fashion: The Book of Clothes of Matthaeus and Veit Konrad > Schwarz of Augsburg > > Fashion Plates: 150 Years of Style, by April Calahan > > Regency Women's Dress: Techniques and Patterns 1800-1830, by Cassidy Percoco > > and a biography: > > Queen Victoria's Mysterious Daughter: A Biography of Princess Louise, by > Lucinda Hawksley > > Fran Grimble > Lavolta Press > Books of historic clothing patterns > www.lavoltapress.com _______________________________________________ h-costume mailing list email@example.com http://mail.indra.com/mailman/listinfo/h-costume
