As I promised in my last post
this one would be about some ( not all ) of the things that I have been doing during my hiatus.

This is my none historical post. That I am saving for the NEXT one...



Here fishy, fishy.

A beaded sperm whale pin.

The beads are sewn onto dark blue felt.

Since it is on felt this means it is very flexible...


There she blows!
Finally finished my whale wall hanging!

I am rather please with how it came out.
It has already come in handy many times.


I got to go to the coast!



Do you know what these are?

That is right! they are a teeny,tiny working corset busk.
At this point you may be thinking- What do you need a tiny working corset busk for Kacie?

The answer would be
 a miniature replica of my 1902 corset for my doll, of course!


Yes, I made an almost exact replica of my corset, for my doll.

One to many eyelets on the left side....


I had a Birthday!
My Mom and Dad got me a new sewing machine a few months back.
( which I have already posted about.)
But my Mom thought that she would give me something ON my birthday.
Since I am ALWAYS "stealing" her Quilting ruler, she decided that it was time I had one of my own :)
It has already seen much use. 


More pattern drafting.
This time for modern clothing.


The most exciting thing.

I got my Wedding ring quilt in the quilting frame!!!!!

It took about two tries getting the layers all basted but I got it done!......

Well. Not DONE, just in the frame....But still!!!
I can almost see a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel!

The next few posts shall be about all my historical projects that I have been working on...

Happy Wanderings~

1904 Waist

Yes I know I haven't blogged for a long time.
Life being far to busy plus the up loader on this thing makes it to where it takes all day to upload one post. I will try to be better in the future.


1904 waist #1.
I finished the bodice a few months ago, and have worn it many times.
I can't remember what pattern I used....sorry, if I remember I will put it up.
The fabric is cotton calico, light brown with green print.

It turned out OK. The thing I don't like the most about this bodice
is the fact that the arm holes are far to small. After wearing it all day, when I take it off I have chaffing around my shoulders and arms...This can easily be fixed on my next bodice.

Got to love that great S curve.

I did the more authentic way of putting the lining in with the waist band.
since the skirt goes over the bodice, I had to think of a way to make so the skirt would still be supported and the "puff" in the front would stay all day even after running around playing games.
I solved this problem by going the authentic way. Fancy that, they knew what they where doing!

In my next post I will be doing a recape of all I have been doing while being lazy and not posting anything up in the past month...

Happy Sewing~
