Pair of garters 1780 - Finished!

So, I just finished the garters this morning! Yay!




Since I have another day off today and plenty of spare time during the weekend as well, I'm already planning what to sew next. I just found some leftover pieces of black wool in my stash and I'm thinking about making embroidered mitts. I also need a neckerchief and a cap... We'll see what I come up with next! But because I can't afford to get much new fabrics at the moment, I'm going to be making some accessories, that's for sure.

    1. Yes, I know, it is indeed a good thing! I don't have many of them (yet) because I was lazy and never felt like sewing all those little things before... :)

  3. I didn't see this before I replied to your comment on my blog.

    These turned out so pretty and sweet! They're wonderful, great job!

    I understand what you mean about stash fabrics. It's so nice to have a little extra fabric from older projects to work on accessories. I can't wait to see your mitts!

  4. Very Beautiful project !
    Can I make just a comment ? It should be written "JE MEURE OU JE M'ATTACHE", not "JE MEURE OU LE M'ATTACHE" ! (it's written in french ... and I am ;-)
    This small sentence refers to the ivy, which become attached to something or die ... like love !
