I sewed myself an apron dress in three hours yesterday. I felt very pleased with myself.

images below, fair warning! )

I'm very proud of myself. Three hours from pulling out the fabric to hanging it up.

What project(s) is/are you working on right now? Are they going well? Have you run into any difficulties? Solved any problems? Learned something new?

I'm embroidering an Elizabethan coif, slowly working on an Eleanora of Toledo sottana (it will be my first hand-sewn 16th century, and possibly my first hand-sewn anything), and researching men's Viking Rus clothing. Plus I have this shirt in pieces that I'm supposed to be remaking so it's actually wearable. I really should finish that.

...yes, I have Too Many Projects.

What about you? What are you doing this month?

I finally finished my Elizabethan gown "in the Polish fashion" (closed with frogs)--I have been sewing on frogs a few at a time for months, since I hate it so.

It's loosely based on the Darnley Portrait and the Peace Portrait of Elizabeth I. It's my first attempt at a fitted Elizabethan gown and I'm still working out some problems with the doublet pattern, but overall I'm quite happy with it.

A photo! )

More commentary at my DW account (including what I'm going to fix next time around) and photos at my Flickr account.

I did make a necklace and girdle to go with it, but I couldn't find them before the event last Saturday (I finished attaching the frogs at 12:30 am the night before).
