So we have been back from End Of Trail now for almost 2 weeks.
In that time it's been busy clearing washing, folding and ironing, for Jack, cleaning and reloading for the next trip, and of course a couple of club matches thrown in good measure and getting to the gym and swimming.
Then to the new fabric choices on the board, sorting out what needs to be cut, sewn, drafted, ordered and put into production.
It certainly has been a busy couple of weeks.
– finished making a bustle skirt and corset – sent!
– 2 vaquero suits underway, passementerie trim arrived and patterns half sorted in my head from photos.
– 2 reticule's made aka small hand bag or if you are Jack – a shell bag for brass……no comment.
– 8 corsets at varying stages of production on the table. Extra steel has now arrived for completion.
– 1 bar keep's apron.
Ready to cut out – 1 split skirt, 2 shirts, 1 pr bloomers, 1 pr pants.
Find fabric for – 1 civil war bodice, 3 corsets, 1 b-western outfit, 2 b-western shirts….and that's only a part of it.
Oh, and just a small portion of embroidery to be done.
But you know what, it's not a chore. Everything is different, I love it and can't wait for the next project.
This next trip though the sewing machine will be going with me to do some portion whilst enjoying some of the Midwest highlights of this great country.
This week coming we will be heading back up through to Colorado to Nunn and then spend a couple of days with Aspen Filly before heading through to Cheyenne, Wyoming and beyond.
Check out the 'Where Along The Trail' on the website to see the schedule.
See you on the trail!!
You are a busy bee! We are still in Colorado & won’t be home until August. I found an antique Victorian dress in a shop in Woodland Park, CO. Very beautiful. I would buy it except it’s very tiny – probably a size zero. I will send you some photos & maybe you can copy for me. Happy Sewing!
I have some pics to email you too!
