Just when I thought I had finished all my historical costumes for the year more show up. This time they aren’t for me though. Recently, I found out that the family ball I go to has a theme for this year. It is the 19th Century. Naturally, since my Mom and sister are going, they want costumes for the ball. Fortunately, I already have two 19th century costumes and am not interested in making another for the ball.
My sister wants hers to be more modern with a historical flair. This will be easier considering I already have a few patterns and a decent amount of fabric preplanned for a 19th century gown for her. Unfortunately, she doesn’t totally like the colors or the fabric. Soooooo, I’ll have to rethink the plan. Funny thing is, she liked the fabrics when I first got them. It is interesting how tastes change.
My mom still hasn’t decided on a pattern, color scheme, or style for her costume. I’m hoping to incorporate some rich, jewel colors in her costume. Time is running short so I hope she makes her mind up soon!
Other than that, I have no other historical costumes I’d like to make this year. Thank goodness! If I did I wouldn’t be able to make my other cosplay endeavors. I’m hoping to get to them soon, especially as school comes to a close.
