This is partially because I stayed up quite late last night taking decent portfolio-worthy pictures of the stuff I've finished recently, and partly because I haven't been sleeping well for a week. I lie in bed and my mind whirs and whirs frantically, and it's all I can do to STAY in bed and not leap up at 3am and sew that seam or look up that detail or do anything. But still, I just have three more weeks to push though... it'll probably go much faster than I would like anyway.
Sent in applications today for several summer-season jobs... we'll see if anything comes of it!
And thanks to my self-timed photo session last night, I have pictures of the 1830 dress, the 1810 spencer, and the new Victorian corset! (plus decent-er ones of the 1810 and 1820 dresses)
I quite like the shape of the skirt (which you can clearly see in this photo). I just have a (fairly skimpy) corded petticoat and little ruffly bustle underneath, but it seems to work really well! That, and I think my stab at 1830's hair wasn't too terrible either. I have no hairpieces (need to remedy that at some point...) and my curling iron is, at a 1" diameter, too large to make cluster-y curls.
( And here's everything else! )
I'm in the middle of updating my website(s) with everything. Official "portfolio-y" website has everything up already, but I'm still working on Behind the Tapestry.
Any you know what? In spite of being exhausted, I am somehow enjoying all this. We'll see how I feel in three weeks though!
I just have to make the 1840 dress now, and then finish the paintings.
