First I want to say that I'm super proud of my husband. We did the filming for a 5min video for a client a two weeks ago, today they emailed to tell him they LOVE the footage SO much they'd like to make it 3 five min videos and triple the editing contract. This is huge for him and he's really really please and I'm very proud of him.
Secondly, he's out shooting so I can either a) clean the apt b) study for my chem exam or c) plot for Dress U...which would YOU pick.
I've come to the sad realization that I just don't have the funds to do the Cairnwood dress this year, I love it SO dearly that I don't want to do it "wrong" so to speak. Which leaves a giant hole in my party wardrobe. Currently I'm not sure what I'm going to wear for either the Tiara party OR the Titanic party.
I have the simplicity titanic pattern, and I swore I wasn't going to make a teens dress, but I'm kind of contemplating making a simple one. I really want to limit myself to stash things but I know I have no base fabric, but I might find something for only a few dollars at Jomar. Next I'm pondering the undies. I really don't want to buy anything, I have some heavy canvas I could use...but I don't have steel bones or a busk. I'm wondering what a teens corset with zipties would be like? I know they're less than ideal in my Victorian corset because they do add bulk, but like I said we're coasting on fumes here, so really I need to use things that are here.
I think I'd really like to do a regency dress for the Tiara party (I fully blame blackcat452
although I undoubtedly won't hold a candle to her) but the fabric I have is really good for an evening gown. I have black and silver plaid poly taffeta I"ve always meant to be a Victorian dress.
I really should go through the closet and make a schedule and figure out how many outfits I really NEED anyway.

I have a whole bolt of hunter green velveteen just looking for a use. It's not super drapey but I don't think the velvet on this one is either.
