99 days

99 days left in 2019 (it’s frightening how fast the years go by now).

I’m keeping busy — I may not have been blogging but I’ve definitely been working on sewing projects (including my FAL goal).

I’ve been a little sidetracked by historical costumes the last couple of weeks. I’ve been reading my costume books (I have most of the Herbert Norris and some Iris Brooke tomes) and trying to make sense of the Janet Arnold pattern books. I have spent more hours than I care to acknowledge watching YouTube videos on dress and hairstyles of the 18th and 19th centuries and scrolling through costume blogs. Now I’m feeling the urge to try making a couple of toiles from the Arnold patterns …

There’s a reason for all of this, of course, but I can’t tell you yet as I’m still waiting on a couple of things to be delivered.
