Sew Influential

Talk about being a product of your environment!!! I have been watching a lot of shows like Camelot, A Game of Thrones, The Borgias, The Tudors and any other thing like it. So my clothing and hair jewelry are taking on the charm of those times. I love beaded hair nets and long dresses with godets and lace. Just because of the nature of my work I don’t get to sew much for me, but I do crochet shawls and hairnets any chance I get. For the dresses, I modify maxi dresses and sun dresses to capture a little of the days of old. Go figure a sassy gal like me harkening back to olden times for style and inspiration. Hmmmm, guess it’s not really a stretch the women were modest in dress, afforded themselves the time to get dressed, and spent hours pouring over the perfect fabrics and trims from which to get dressed.

Side effect – my English gets better and more annoying as the weeks go by.
