The stripy silk is on the way!

All the bodice and sleeve pieces have been scaled up.  Yipe!  The skirt I'll tackle by draping once I get a bodice mock up done.  Of course, none of this can go forward until I get that corset done.  Which means I've got to order the supplies.  Then there's the matter of fabric.

For the jacket I'm going with the black cotton velvet.  Safe choice, I know.  But hey, it works.  I have a few in mind for the dress.  None of which is over $6.00 a yd.

Any thoughts?  I could really use some input, 'cause I can't stop dithering.

Fabric 1  not to sure about twill

Fabric 2  I really want stripes, so I'm  leaning toward this one.

Fabric 3   I like the delicate feel of this one.  And its green.

Fabric 4 Again, I'm not too sure about the twill

I'm sick

of white undies.  All I've been sewing for the past month is white, white, white!  And even though I've more white that needs to be sewn (Victorian corset, Mantua Maker stays) I need to take a break and work with some color! 
All my costuming projects are in stasis, waiting for the white undies, and I'm sick of walking around town looking like a slob, so modern it is!

Kind of. )

What I just won on ebay!

4 3/4 yds of cotton for  $17.50!  Woohoo!  I'm thinking  polonaise.  But we'll see when it gets here.

I've got 7 yds of this fabric

No flash

Mom gave it to me about 4 years ago.  It's a poly brocade, so bound to be hot, but I like it.  However, I have no idea what to do with it.  Any suggestions?

Current temp: 100 deg.  (so not as hot as they said it would be, but still too much for me)
