Hello World!

We’re still around and costuming! We’ve definitely slowed down a lot though with life getting busy and some of us having kids (holy cow), but we’re all still active and you’ll see updates here and there.

Another lovely tea and dance with the Jane Austen Evening! I really love attending this Regency event in Pasadena. Sorry I don’t have more photos! I forgot to charge my camera battery! The Jane Austen Evening is held in such a beautiful building! I made a new dress for this year’s event out of another Indian saree from my stash. This one was shocking hot pink with beautiful gold bullion trim and details. I used Laughing Moon’s new #130 Wrapping Front Gown pattern. I was inspired partially by Jane Seymour’s bright purple dress from the “play” in Austenland. Here’s me with my friend Michelle! I was also excited to bring my “new” cupid candelabras to decorate our tea table. Part of the fun of the tea portion of the event is that people bring their own fancy tea cups and table decorations. They provide lots of delicious period inspired savory foods, sweets and [...]

I took a $1.50 bunny hand towel from Daiso and put it on my old navy pullover! If you want to try, I fray checked around the edge of the bunny and cut the bunny out. I pinned the bunny carefully onto the sweatshirt making sure not to catch the other side or the pocket. I then basted the bunny on and used a satin stitch to applique it on. Ta da! [...]

fleece hats for charity
I’ve been sewing fleece hats the last few days while watching Game of Thrones. Yes, I am one of the few people left who hasn’t watched Game of Thrones. I’ve actually been avoiding the show because I’ve read the books, and it’s hard to watch the show when you know every bad thing that’s going to happen. Season 1 was the hardest for me but once I got past that, I was pretty hooked. HBO did an amazing job with the show and of course, I love the costumes! Anyways, back to the hats… Mi holds a hat making party every few months. She gets a bunch of people together to make fleece hats which she donates to a local hospital to hand out to patients undergoing chemotherapy. It’s a fun event with friends, food, and lots of sewing machines and fabric, and all for a good cause. I’ve been so busy with the [...]
