I really don't feel like I made that much this year. I'm not sure if that's because I just started sewing for the first time in two months, or if it's actually true, though. So here's what I made:

1830s plaid silk dress and yellow bonnet, made for wearing in Oliver, plus the Victorian Festival and Costume College


Blue wool coat, which I basically wear every day


Burgundy and mauve striped silk bustle dress, for the Victorian Festival and Costume College


Burgundy silk Regency dress, as a pattern test for Laughing Moon


Ripaway mermaid tail and Cinderella costume (and some other bits) as costumes for Disenchanted, for which I was Costume Coordinator


1890s Plaid "ice cream parlour" shirtwaist and navy walking skirt for Costume College, but also worn in The Music Man


Yellow 1890s Gala Gown for Costume College, including choker, royal order, bracelet, and petticoat with detachable train


A white cotton Victorian-style robe, which turned out to be the most practical thing I made for Costume College


Elephant dress for my friend's new baby

1910s white cotton and lace dress, worn to Snoqualmie Railroad Days


3 skirts and 3 playdresses through my etsy shop

Dapper Merida for Dapper Day; Also worn in White Christmas and to Christmas tea


Disney-print 1950s jumper dress


Princess Anna Frozen Fever


A bodice and skirt combo for the Silverbells Carolers, plus a few alterations for them

A "Totes Ma Goats" totebag as a secret Santa project


A skirt for my mom

A Marauders Map Fleece Blanket for my dad

The beginnings of an 1883 walking skirt (not finished, though I started cutting out a bodice mockup yesterday)


I guess that's a decent amount of stuff after all. But if I'm going to be on track for CoCo this year, I can't just take a two month break from sewing again!

It almost feels silly to post my sewing goals when I've only accomplished one since I wrote them out in August! But anyway, this is what I'm hoping to make and when:

Winter coat - started, and will hopefully be done by the end of this weekend. I finished the puzzle, so other than work and rehearsal, I can focus on this now. It needs to be finished by mid-Feb at latest.

1890s Queen Mary-inspired yellow evening gown - Ultimate goal: Costume College; Ideal goal: Victorian festival in late March. I would potentially like to make an 1890s corset for this, since my only specific corsets are 1860s and 1870s, but I doubt I could finish both by the Victorian Festival. I also probably want a new petticoat for this, since I usually cobble together other petticoats in an attempt to get an 1890s shape.  

1880s Mauve and Stripey bustle - Needs to be finished by the Victorian festival. 

1830s Plaid silk dress - Ultimate goal: Costume College, but I could potentially wear it to the Victorian Festival if I finish it in time. 

Edwardian velvet-ribbon trimmed walking dress - need by CoCo. But of course, the sooner the better!

Once I manage to finish all that, I'd really like to make a new set of 18th c stays. Neither of mine are very comfortable, which is why I tend to stay away from the 18th c. But I really want to make more 18th c (I want to use the new AD Simplicity pattern!), which means a new corset. 


Of course, the wrench in my plans for the Victorian Festival is that I begin rehearsals for Oliver this week, and as soon as that closes, I'm going to Europe for nearly 2.5 weeks. And the festival is less than two weeks after I get back. I'm hoping I can at least do the stripey bustle, since I won't mind terribly if I have to wear last year's CoCo gala gown for the ball - after all, it's changed quite a bit since I wore it to last year's ball there.

I found that I really wanted to relax and binge on Parks and Rec for most of the weekend other than while I was at the theatre, since I was so tired after tech week last week. So I slept in every day, did a little cleaning around the house, and ran a few errands. I did do some sewing, though. The pieces for the bustle dress underskirt are all together - next step is the waistband, then a hem, then ruffles and it will be done. I also got an etsy order for Princess Sofia over the weekend, so I worked on that yesterday instead of the bustle skirt. It's almost done, but I forced myself to go to bed before I had finished it. I should finish it in about 30 mins this evening, and it will ship out tomorrow. I'm hoping I might also have the time/energy to pleat the skirt into the waistband, too.

Still no CoCo Recap - A) It's tech week, and B) the pro photos are coming out really nice this year, so I'm thinking about buying some of them to use in the recaps. 

So anyway, despite it being tech week, I had a little bit of time over the weekend to figure out the dimensions/pattern for the underskirt for the stripey bustle dress, and on Monday, I had enough time to cut out four of the pieces. I should be able to cut out the other three today, and start assembling them. I will cut out the ruffles once that's done - I'm hoping that maybe I'll be able to use selvage for the ruffle hems, but I'm not sure I have enough fabric for that. But I am loving the silk satin so far! I've never worked with silk satin before, and it is so soft and lovely, and it even smells good! I wish Home Fabrics had had some better colors, because I would have bought so much more of it. 

Also, I am soooo looking forward to next week, when the show will be open and I will have free weeknights. I have free time for most of the following week, too, and then I start rehearsals for my next show, Annie, in which I will be playing Miss Hannigan. So in the meantime, I need to take advantage of my freedom, clean up the house (it's a disaster right now), sew, and actually relax!
