Project completed!Thank you from the bottom of my heart to everyone who supported my project fundraiser.
Day 14My last day of the creative challenge is completed.
Day 13Day 13 and getting close to deadline now.
Day 11-12So I decided to have a weekend mostly- but I have done a little bit more work on the bodice.
Day 10Progress continued on my tiny period costume today.
Day 9Wow the days are slipping away, its day 9 already!
Day 8This morning I finished the skirt hem and waist of the tiny costume.
Day 7More progress today on my creative project .
Day 6The tiny stays are finished- and I removed the gold cord from the hem, as I thought it was too much! The lacing was super fiddly but has been achieved- yeah!
Day 5Not a lot done on my project today , rest is sometimes helpful too.
Day 4 updateToday I have tacked some fine braid onto the hem of the stays prior to sewing on the machine tomorrow.
Day 3A big day making a super small thing.
Stays pattern ready!So the pattern for the stays is done- tomorrow is the day to deal with trying to make a teeny set of stays. A challenge!
I just finished this chemise- which will be worn under the stays and the hoop petticoat.
For the fabric I used a vintage apron from my stash ,that was a little stained and too fragile too be worn .
Now onto a pattern for the stays!
Day 1 updateDay 1- hoop petticoat almost finished, next stage tomorrow is a teeny tiny set of stays.
My ProjectOver the next 14 days I will create an 18th Century style costume for this small fashion mannequin, using mostly fabrics from my fabric stash.
Help me create a mentally healthier world
#14daysyourway is Black Dog Institute's social connection challenge.
While many of us are heading indoors, it is important that we keep mentally and physically active while staying connected with our friends and family.
