Prepping for 2015

Historical Sew Fortnightly Monthly 2015 challenges announced!  Woo!

See the challenges here:

I've planned out my year and am posting is here to keep me accountable.  I'm sure I'll waffle and maybe even change a few things, but at least it's in writing to make sure I participate.  I've only done one sort-of challenge SO 2015 will be my year of hardcore historical sewing.

2015 as follows:
January - Foundations - 1760s stays, mid-18th century shift

February - Colour Challenge Blue - blue pocket hoops

March - Stashbusting - Colourful striped polonaise.  The fabric is ridiculous and I love it.  It's not natural, but whatevs.  I've promised my husband I'd work on his 1932 smoking jacket.  The polonaise can wait :(

April - War & Peace - 1930s dress

May - Practicality - Regency apron

June - Out of your Comfort Zone - Regency corset (Hrmph!)

July - Accessorize - late 18th century hat

August - Heirlooms & Heritage - Traditional Welsh Costume

September - Colour Challenge: Brown - Regency dress

October - Sewing Secrets - I could be clever and say it's a secret, but really, I just haven't decided yet.

November - Silver Screen - Jacket worn by Elizabeth Bennet in the 1995 mini-series 'Pride and Prejudice'.  THIS.  Swoon.

December - Re-do - Probably foundations, but I'll wait and see which one I screw up before deciding ;)
