A little peek at what I’ve been working on for the Princesses. I have the next one under way and hope to finish it for the Jan. 2, 2010 Dickens Reunion ball. Wish me luck!
Here are some of my favorite photos from the movie cross promotion events:
Last day of Dickens fair we had a special surprise for the Royal children. The Green Man Inn hid 4 bears that I decorated for the children & then then had a bear hunt with their papa. Continue reading Dickens Fair: Royal children’s bears
I am reusing the lace from my wedding gown on this bodice. I think the lace fit in pretty nicely and is just basted on so that it can still be worn with other outfits.
to Dickens Fair for another weekend. I will be out of contact till Tuesday Dec. 8th. Please be patient & I will contact you just as soon as I am back in the office :) I’m almost fully packed. Just remembered to pack up some food too.
Tomorrow is our 1st year anniversary in our first house. I’m sorta sad to be away the whole day instead of celebrating with a big party.
I have to make up the sleeves, the back closure, and a few more bows but the ballgown bodice for the Queen’s gown is coming along nicely. It can’t be worn at Dickens Fair but I do have a few events coming up. It is made to tie in nicely with the skirt I wear at Dickens fair. The Victorians shared skirts between day and evening bodices as well. I’ll keep you guys updated once I know when & where I am making my appearances for the movie “The Young Victoria”.
I picked up this new-to-me shawl that I thought fabulously clashed with Miss Estella’s dress. The beautiful cravat that didn’t sell coordinated so well I had to sacrifice it for her bonnet.
Another bonnet completed:
Preparation for Dickens Christmas Fair is well under way :) Made it through the first workshop weekend as well as dancing practice with the Prince consort(s) tonight. I wanted a fun project & these have been fun so far. I have one more I’ll probably work on this week.
Bonnets (along with the pattern changes for a bodice I helped drape for my housemate last night):
My mother-in-law is selling her wares at the rehearsal weekends up in Pacifica. I’m thinking I’ll have her put these at her booth to see if anyone is interested. Continue reading Dickens Fair: bonnets in progress
