I have several projects I've been in and out of love with. Mostly because I see a new pattern and go "o0o0o0o0ooo0ooo!!!!!" and then completely switch gears. My latest out of nowhere decision was to pick up a copy of Simplicity 3791. It's a very close version to a dress at the MET.
(admit it, you can't even tell which one is labeled Simplicity!)
The trouble is. I've never really like the big hoop era. But a friend is going to Remembrance Day in Gettysburg, and that sounds super fun. I'll be going, and since I respect a theme, I need to have a dress. But this dress does not say practical November clothing. I bought it anyway. I'm sure I'll find something that says cold weather resistant. And I have lots of teal wool sitting around. Did they have teal wool then?
Of course all of this takes away from a Victorian mourning dress I've been wanting to make for a "theatrical seance" I'm going to in August. And the Anne Boleyn dress I purchased green velvet for last December. And the 1920s day dress I wanted to make if I plan to return to the Jazz Age Lawn party on Governor's Island in NY in August.......
