December: Our annual Regency Holiday Tea
I don't need to wear something new to this, I could wear the Aqua Regency ensemble which I've only worn once, but it's not super warm as the spencer is only one layer. Plus, I've been wanting to get on the Northanger Abbey Riding outfit for a while now. That means:
White drawstring dress with small train
Blue velvet spencer
Necktie/Jabot (is that the right term?)
My black top hat with black tulle around it.
January - Twelfth Night Ball
Once again, don't necessarily need anything new, but I have this really pretty red striped silk... Don't know what I want to do with it though. So I may just wear my Floral Francaise or my Zone front and focus on making two new accessories. A small muff and an accurate fan!
February - 1812 Ball!
Already started on the beaded ball dress I'll wear!
March - Returning Heroes Ball
I may not go this year, but if I do I'm not making anything new, I'll just finish adding the loops of lace to the green ball gown skirt.
April - Titanic Weekend
So excited for this. Am planning three outfits, two day, one evening, but first I need to start with underwear. Here's the list:
bust enhancer (brassier with ruffles)
Simple wool skirt and cotton waist combination
Aqua day dress (see inspiration below)
Blue and Silver Evening Dress (see insipiration below)
|This is what I'm recreating for my evening dress. I will be using grey silk charmuese and chiffon with a blue silk velvet. It's going to be pretty! If I can actually pull it off! :P|
May - nothing, whew, take a break! And get ready for...
June - Dress U!
Wear everything I've made over the last few months! :)
So it's a pretty fun list! I'm excited about everything really! So I guess next up is the white drawstring dress and the velvet spencer. Luckily I've already make a version of this jacket, so I kind of know what I'm doing. I still need to find the other fabric for the lapels and buttons though...
