As usual, my sewing plans from the end of last year haven't been going as ... planned. But I did make a lot of the regular clothes that I wanted to! I just haven't been feeling historical this year apparently.
Civil War sewing: I at least need to get the undergarments and the plaid day dress finished for the Symposium, which is at the beginning of April: UPDATE pretty much nothing has happened except finishing the hoop.
- Finish the undergarments, the corset chemise and drawers are done, just have the hoop and petticoat to go UPDATE June: Hoop is finished.
- Cream plaid day dress
- Plaid ballgown (maybe)
- Garibaldi blouse and skirt.
Other Eras / Steampunk UPDATE June : absolutely no progress on any of these

- BurdaStyle 1970s-esque denim trousers: I made a pair already this year and I LOVE them. I need more. The pair I made were in stretch denim, I'm thinking maybe some corduroy... UPDATE June: Still haven't made another pair but I really should because I STILL love them
