Also known as the 'GET IT DONE!' list.
This is going to be somewhat of a challenge this Spring, since there are a lot of events going on to eat up my time, but I will try my best.
So, without further ado, here is my first stab at an actual schedule:
- Velvet frock coat, waistcoat and breeches for Anders - Finish date of March 18th
- Georgian stays, bumroll(s) and shift - Finish date of April 20th
- 18th century gown of some kind and hat - Finish date of May 20th
- New Victorian corset (1850s-70s), hoop and bustle - Finish date of June 31st
- The V&A 1870s gown & bonnet - Finish date of July 31st
- **Free project time frame for anything else I want/need to make (finishing the Sisi velvet ensemble, 1930s, 1830s, burlesque costume?)** - August 1st through August 30th
- **BEGIN THE DICKENS FAIR SEWING** - by August 31st
- 1850s day dress (skirt and bodice) - Finish date September 20th
- 1850s mantel and bonnet - Finish date September 31st
- Ladies 1850s-1860s military inspired ensemble - Finish date October 31st at the latest
So, let's see how that actually pans out amongst my real life, re-enactments, burlesque performances and day job work schedule. I'd definitely like to have at least one new ensemble completed for Dickens Fair, before the workshops begin in late October (?).
Yes, I could just start the Dickens stuff now, but the Rococo/18th century stuff must come first. It's been on the back burner for too many years. YEARS. I'm sick of having to shove aside all my 18th century ideas, patterns, fabrics and trimming stash for other era event sewing.
I need my RocoCocaine(tm) fix!
