zamieszanie czyli robię wszystko na raz:)

Nastąpił przełom- czyli wszystko staje na głowie i się zmienia... Zaliczyłam gramatykę historyczną, co oznacza, że juz tylko mgr do napisania:) Poza tym Oki znalazł nam sympatyczne mieszkanko w Edynburgu, więc czekam na nową przygodę w nowym mieście! A na koniec nieubłaganie zbliża się slub Domina i Martynki, czyli tkwie po uszy w szyciu:) W miedzyczasie robie tysiące innych rzeczy, bez których nie mogę sie obejść jak np.:

My first german purse:) I didn't know how to finish the edges, so I've only put a lace round. I haven't finished tassels yet... Although it's not a very "historic" purse (it's made with cotton on linen) I'm really proud of it:)

I felt in love with XVIIth century clothes... Because my brother is getting married in historic clothes, I've already made a skirt and a "kabacik"- I don't know the english name, but it looks like a corset and it's fastened at the front. In one week I will have photos from the wedding so I will post them here:) Below you can see the corset of my friend Netka, who's doing beautifull re-enactment clothes.

For the moment I'm dreaming about having more time to do corsets, purses etc.:) ...

frilled veil

Especially for Machteld and Isis- how I've done my frilled veil. I hope You will understand my english explanation;)  If not,  You can send any questions to cailin@poczta.fm

First I took the long strips of fabric, folded them in half and fastened them like that:

After pulling the thread very tightly, the flounce looks like that:

Then I attached the flounces to the edge of semi oval textile- on the front side (the straight one), which is around my face, I have 4 layers of flounces. At the back there's one layer. The flounces are sewed between two layers of fabric.

On my head it looks like that:

I hope it will help You in your reserch:)
