Mostly 1876-themed project dump

by - 9:50 AM

Hi everybody. I guess a little explanation of what's been going on is due... I can't believe it has been this long since I last posted anything before the fabric haul post- but a lot of tough things have happened, with a grave injury and illness in my family, so in between of that and my own ongoing health troubles and schoolwork overload there was no space for blogging or creating anything much. I hope it will improve somewhat now that the exams are done and summer is here...

Anyway, for now at least a couple of teasers - stuff that I started working on before all this madness happened, but didn't get around posting them.

1. Bonnet for Ellie's dollies - started working on it seriously ages ago, still not done, but getting there. I hope she'll like it when it's finished...

2. An 1876 dolman - this began as the project for the red HSF challenge from last year, but I didn't make it... Red satin, white flannel interlining, lining will probably be black given the black lace trimming I'm gonna sew on. It seriously needs ironing. And I'm wavering whether to add a black net overlay...

3. The silver 1876 gown that was meant to be finished by the time of Ellie's visit to Prague last year - well, might be it will be finished in time for her next visitXD I need to find silver grey tulle somewhere...and more of this awesome lace. Has anybody seen it for sale anywhere?

4. A turquoise 1876 winter jacket - finally found the fabric which is the right colour! I'm planning to add a white net lace overlay over it; fingers crossed the jacket will look good with the silver dress.
This is the pattern I'll be using, I think:

5. An 1876 petticoat to go with the gown - I started a bit strangely, with the detachable train, because it's the fun bit:-) I ran out of lace and it's only the second row...

Hope you ladies and gentlemen are doing good,
with love,

  1. Hello Rosa,
    How magnificent! The bonnet is just beautiful! I love the lace you used. I also am in love with that gorgeous blue fabric and the splendid silver tulle. I am very sorry to hear that you are going through a rough patch. I do hope things get better fast.
    Big hug

    1. Awww! Thank you so much, Giac, I'm glad to see you here! Oh yes, dat lace<3 So happy you like all those things *hugs back tight*

  2. Oh my God, what delicious projects and fabrics! We must go fabric and trimming shopping together some day! <3 Of course, I absolutely adore the bonnet already!! I seriously can't wait to see it in person. The colours and trims are so soft and dreamy. <3
    And I hope, if things go well on both our sides, that we can talk about Prague soon?
    Best wishes, and lots of love,
