Improvise!

When you buy a new ironing board cover and you haven't checked length, 'cause who would have thought that they aren't the same……..yeah, me.

So improvise! Had some fabric in the stash, cut out a whole new one for later and added a new piece to the bought one to make it fit!

 

Now I can get back to the task at hand which is ironing clothes and making them fit into the very small closet.

Colourful Creations

In between the daily walks along pathways and beachfronts, productivity has still been eventful.

This handful of corsets are ready for grommet setting.

The shirt and arm garters are done.

Finally, an eclectic mix of colour and pattern ready for surprises later. 🤐😉

Other repairs and alterations have been completed.

Now I’m onto some work for a gown that can’t be revealed until much later, I am enjoying this one and can’t wait for it to be completed! It is gorgeous.

Having almost completed some of these tasks as well then it’s back to planning other projects! A few more B-Western outfits and a few more gowns!

Have a good one!

Bluebonnets and Candy Corn

A strange combination but really, they aren’t together, just together for the same wearer!

Petticoat Parker’s new Texas blue bonnet and flags corset, reticule and matching arm garters for Red River Raider.

Getting set for Halloween later in the year, she also has her candy corn ensemble as well.

Fun stuff!

Let’s Go Swimming!

Made from Ageless Patterns 1893 Swimming Costume pattern these cute swimsuits are sure to keep a certain cowgirl cool for Summer shoots.

When Dirty Nerdy gets these it will suit her personality down to the ground.

I’m sure in 1893 the suggested fabrics were blue flannel! A far cry from these whimsical patterns that Dirty Nerdy acquired.

My favourite?! The pin up girls of course followed by the Liberty fabric.

They were fun to do, probably make a couple changes next time I do this pattern but I love them.

Be Seen In Green

Green and cream. Tea dyed lace and broderie anglaise pair well with this green floral of Annie Hicock's.

She has made a shirt for Fast Fingers while I do the matching skirt and corset for her.

For this one I've coordinated a green check to create the skirt trim, the sash and the binding edge's for the corset.

 

It's coming together nicely Annie! Looking forward to seeing you coordinated pair on the range at Land Run!!

Neapolitan Dreams

Mmmm some delectable pairings of chocolate, strawberry and vanilla fabrics for Pinky Jo has seen me spend many hours ironing small hems on 30 odd yards of frills.

 

They've gone from flat to fabulous froufrou in a shorter time thank goodness!

 

With these luscious frills now on the skirt, it's on to finishing the top and coordinating floral corset. Needs fluffy petticoats rather than a hoop though.

 

Always looking spectacularly pink, I think you are going to love this one Pinky Jo!
