Trying to sew my first bodice, darts are a lot harder than I thought, they don't necesscarily just fit your body because you follow the line on the pattern! So much harder than skirts! I will have to get help off grandma with this!
But I don't think I am doing too badly, I did make that cage skirt, and I have nearly finished another skirt. Skirts are a lot easier than top halves!
In other news if you look up "Victorian madwoman hair" on Google, I am the first, ninth and nineteenth images that come up! :P
Oh and the fourth image is from a splendid old film called The Madwoman of Chaillot, which you should really see if you can! I adored it! Here is a brief rundown of it. And, of course, Katharine Hepburne, who plays the titular character is a fascinating person herself. What wonderful company I am in!
