Happy Easter, Belated Ostara

Image
I just wanted to wish everyone a Happy Easter and belated Blessed Ostara, depending on what you celebrate. If you don't celebrate any of these, then happy beautiful spring day!

I definitely think that a beautiful spring day is worth celebrating. I am sitting here at my computer, next to the open window. The sun is just making its appearance and everything has those morning shadows. I can hear all the little birds chirping, the wind is cool and fragrant. There is just something about this time of year, everything feel electric, everything is coming to life! I know it sounds silly and clique'. But I challenge you to just take a moment and go sit outside. If you can find a quiet place away from cars. Then, just sit, listen and feel. You will start to see what I mean.
Ok, new age lecture over, have a great day everyone!!!!

2008 Ren Dress

Image
Ok so here is the Ren Dress I made for last years faire season. I wore it to, two different faires last year. This was also my first real sewing project. I have to say I am pretty happy with is and looking forward to making this years dress (which is going to be a recreation of queen elizabeth's red dress!). Anyway, here are some pictures . You can also see bigger more detailed pictures in my Ren dress album

The bodice and skirt are hand beaded at all the line intersections with three small pears. Needless to say, this took a WHILE. My mom and I spent 4 hours on just half the skirt.


I also made all the undergarments including:
Shift (slip)
Corset
Farthingale
Petticoat
Partlett

Accessories I made were:
Neck Ruff
Girdle (waist necklace for lack of better description)
Sleeves (Detailed with satin ribbon and more pearls!)
