I’m afraid I haven’t been able to make much progress on my projects. My mother took sick on April 4 and was in ICU for over 3 weeks. So I spent every day at the hospital. She came home under Hospice care on Friday and I have finally been able to start doing some sewing at her house. However, with all the appointments and interruptions it is difficult. Which means I have not finished anything.
Items started this month but not yet completed:
For the farthingale, I used white 2.5 oz/yard linen which I had in my stash. I used the pattern from Margo Anderson’s Elizabethan Lady’s Underpinnings package for a Spanish Farthingale. The dress I am making is from the Modern Maker, and he says the dress is to be worn with a Spanish Farthingale. I first stitched the pieces together using flat-felled seams. Then I stitched 1” bias tape to make a channel for the wire that will be inserted. I just need to put the waistband on, hem it, and put the stiffener in the channels.
