10:34 am - More on the Project...
My project continues. I'm making costumes for a "costume box" ("basket", actually). Costumes were the most-used "toys" my children owned. I think they wore super-hero get-ups more often than they wore clothes! We still have all the old costumes that they wore, but they are mostly in shreds by now. I don't know how much I'll be able to salvage, but I will try, for sentimental reasons. I'm mostly having fun making costumes for girls... something I never got to do. I've made two twirling skirts, a "wonder girl" outfit, and a cape. The Snow White costume is a bit above my skill level as a seamstress, but I plan to tackle it anyway. Most costumes I just make up as I go along, with no patterns. This one is complicated, but if I can pull it off, I'll be impressed. I'd like to make a pinafore (think Little House on the Prairie) with a bonnet... always wanted to do that!
