IN WHICH our intrepid recreatrix drops the video a day late (but on Halloween!) and unleashed her (not-so) inner Goth just in time for the holiday. This video also is a documentation of the creation of my entry for Mathew Gnagy’s Spooky Historically-Inspired Costume Contest. Come join me and see what works, what doesn’t, and seriously get a cup of something warm because the photoshoot was FREEZING.
IN WHICH our intrepid recreatirix tries and fails to remember how to properly warp her inkle loom! Join me as I make some red silk trim for an eventual “Viking Coat” project.
IN WHICH our intrepid recreatirix makes an artistic? aesthetic? REFORM dress in response to Juul and Fanny’s #ReformDressChallenge, using a fairly difficult fabric, and spending WAY too much time on the embroidery portion. I really enjoyed creating such a wonderfully simply shaped garment and am looking forward to making some more dresses along these same lines.
