Missing Event

This weekend is basically the last big event for the Texas reenacting season and I have to miss it. Real life is intruding and all my hobby plans have gone to dust. Hopefully others will have pictures from the event and I will share those links. New dress will have to wait now for the TLHA conference for debut. Bummed.

Blue Plaid Dress Done

Well it's done, including the trim on the skirt. One day I shall make a dress perfect...this one is not it. Yes, the plaids don't match and the sleeves are too short, I always make the sleeves too short! But it fits.

Texas Living History Association

Living History people in Texas are coming together to form an association to promote education, provide resources and cultivate public support for living history. To this end, TLHA is having a conference in January. There are several great sessions planned.

I am definately going. You can find more information about TLHA and the conference on the association's Facebook page at!/groups/TXLHA/members/

Conference registration information is also available on my website at

I hope to see many of my living history friends in Huntsville in January!

The bodice fits. I thought perhaps before putting on the skirt I should make sure the bodice actually fits. And it does...well, just slightly big in the waist, doesn't fit as snug as it should but I can live with that. Belts hide all sorts of sins :).

No, my plaids don't match. They did when I cut the bodic out but now they don't. Oh well, I can produce period images of plaids not matching if needed :) Just noticed that the trim on the bodice doesn't sit even either. Oh well, eventually I will make a dress that has nothing wrong :).

On to attaching the skirt.
