Gallery of Finished Projects....Part III
« on: April 07, 2018, 01:18:53 PM »

I wonder what you all have been up to over the long Winter.

It has been a busy one from my end. Finished projects and more on the sewing schedule for myself and clients.


Made a New Doublet for my husband in December of 2017 out of a Chenille, and contrast fabric as trim.




Renaissance ensembles for my 18" Doll.....




An 1860's Civil War dress ensemble that also includes a full Petticoat, Bloomers, detachable sleeves and collar for a Client's daughter in Fort Worth, Texas.

The replica 16th century is completed . The decorative stitching took 12 hours alone on my machine. This in the 16th century would have taken months by hand. This goes out this week to a new client in Oregon.

These pouches are what I've accomplished this winter.  I also have 3.5 more pouch outsides like the blue one that need to be completed into pouches still.

Those pouches are gorgeous. Huzzah!

A little something I made for myself over the Mother's Day weekend. Not H/A by any means, but looking forward to debuting this at a Sci-Fi convention in July, the Shadow Legion weekend at the MNRF, and Halloween of course. I call this Gothic Vampire ensemble The Blood Countess.







Now back to the Game of Thrones ensemble. It has been a busy month so far.

Wow....... you have amazing skill and talent....

Thank you argyl and JEtherudge854. I enjoy my work.

I finished the Septa Unella  ensemble and Boudica for a client in Colorado, a former R/F forum member. Not a spectacular piece, but one with interesting detail. The 56 eyelets were hand covered with Embroidery Floss and the remaining used to crochet a chain for cording, being that I could not find cording dark enough.

The Linen for the Gown is from an eBay vendor in Denmark. I was very pleased with the high quality of the Linen and looked marvelous after it has been washed and dried. The headpiece is a simple Slip on and off for more comfortable wearing made from a  Wool blend that draped nicely when cut on the bias.


The original from Game of Thrones that was the inspiration for this piece.

My version of it.....






Now on to a Civil War era Ball Gown ensemble for an October wedding in Fort Worth, Texas. Starting with the Undergarments first.

THANK YOU argyl. I try with each piece I do.

This is my next project, argyl, that I am doing in a darker green Dupioni Silk, with a Silk Orgazna trim with gold threading and black beads, accented with  a Black Venise lace trim separating the over from the under skirt.


The skirt pattern.......

The Cosplay Snow White is finished save for the Corset is at the Shoe Repair for grommets. I still have to sew on the Modesty Panel in the back.

Made from Poly Satins. The Toule Overlay for the skirt was from an eBay vendor I was lucky to find. The Gold embroidery designs are Iron On appliques from www.gloryshouse.com that add the finishing touch for the Corset and Cloak. The collar is detachable. Instead of snaps, I used heavy duty sticky Velcro for easier on and off if the client wanted not to wear it.  The Gold multi-colored Gimp trim on the corset, I sewed by hand due to the 5 layer thickness.

This will be ready to ship to Texas on Friday.
