Upcoming projects

Edwardian skirt and vest- fine charcoal grey wool flannel (a very soft and tropical weight wool, perfect for our mild winters), black jet buttons, line with superfine black twill

Feminine Edwardian blouse, full sleeves with deep cuffs- ivory cotton jaquard (to go with the wool suit above), mother-of-pearl buttons

Edwardian style coat, full a-line with princess seams and gathered sleeves, dark red twill with an ivory slubbed cotton lining.

I sense a style theme going on…and I was born a solid 100 years late. I LOVE Edwardian style stuff, and these will be modified enough that I don’t have to wear a corset or remove a rib.

OK let’s see…

4 pieces of yardage for Fall shirts-

a cream and dark red toile voile (say that 3 times fast ) pronounced (twall voil)…

A cream, blue,red,um….green…probably a couple of other colors…Liberty of London print cotton…

ok I have to say this because it’s one of the charms of Gail K Fabrics…they  carry Liberty of London prints, the out of date ones…which, at the LoL website and in stores run upwards of $45 a yard. Gail K has last year’s models for…$15 a yard.  I feel smug every time I buy a piece.

Let’s see…

also a white with royal blue window-pane checks linen

and a dark red and white pinstripe cotton.

Also, buttons for everything. Fancy pants black jet and gold buttons, very Edwardian, for the red coat, and regular old shirt buttons for all the shirts.

I will also be making a bunch of skirts- dark red, khaki, navy blue, dark denim, light denim…black…whatever…

Probably first to be made will be the shirts, because I need them and it won’t get cold enough for the suit or coat until November.

Pictures forthcoming, I promise.
