Shopping counts as progress, right?

I haven't done much sewing yet (it's the end of the semester, so I am very busy wrapping things up!) but I have bought some supplies...

Here are the beads I bought for my Venetian girdle.   I am working on painting them gold right now.

I also bought two different kinds of lace for my camicia, though only one of them is here.  The lace in the picture will be set into the sleeves like this period camicia


  1. Ooooh - the lace is a really good match to that camicia! I had one of my students do a lace-inset camicia (based off of one of the ones in PoF 4) this semester, and it came out lovely. Now I just need to find the time to do one for myself... :)

  2. I was so excited when I found the lace! I spent lots of time ebay looking for just the right thing.

    I need to find the time to actually make it too! And the clock is ticking...
