Hopefully many more projects to come.  Finished the drawers.  I have pics, but they aren't the best.  Bad bathroom lighting, sans flash.

I was going to toss together a little Victorian cap, but after drafting up the pattern, and cutting out the foundation, I realized I didn't have any tulle.  So I spent the morning making up apportioning scales in my uncorseted size to start on my chemise.  If I'm not to tired this afternoon, I';; begin drafting that.  I picked up a fairly light weight linen/cotton blend for this yesterday.

wrestled the #$$#@&^^%$# waistband into submission!  Seriously!  I just couldn't get the mondo drawers into the dratted thing evenly last night!  After 2 hours of futzing and swearing, I gave up and tried to go to bed.  I say tried, 'cause the dastardly thing haunted my dreams, and I'd wake up worrying about it.

These hand finished seams are taking longer than I expected.  Grrrrrr!

Almost there.  Took too long to get the waistband the right length, a common problem for me.  But all I've got left is attaching said waistband and knee bands, and felling the seams!  Hopefully to be accomplished by the end of the weekend, as I'll be doing the felling by hand.  It just looks nicer that way.

I had plans to spend yesterday embroidering my fingers to the bone, and D. was on board.  Unfortunately, I felt horrible, and spent the day in bed.  Bleh. 
So far I've managed 18 of the 27 shamrocks on the first knee band for the drawers.

In that spirit, I've drafted up a pair of  drawers from Fashion of the Gilded Age.   Managed to con D. into tracing a simple shamrock border on one of the knee bands, (he bailed on me for the second one).  Started embroidering that with a simple backstitch.  Took an hour to manage one lousy shamrock.  Might finish sometime before the next decade ends.  Could forgo the embroidery, but I want pretty knickers d*mn it!   Bak to the needle.  Will post progress tomorrow, if any is to be had.
