May and June

We are in may and like every year I do have the spring fever.I'm currently doing a huge clean up in my sewing room(and of all my appartment) because I have a lot of things to do in the next month.

      I must finish the clean up and finish the news curtains .Making a list of things to do.

 Starting , if it's not already done , my New France dress .I wish to modify it to something more historical so we will see if I can do it.I must begin to think of the costume for my son for the festival at the begining of september .If time allow it , make a costume for the pic nic in july for my son even if it's not the same period then me.

Project to come:

finish the golden curtain before the end of may - done
modify my blue New France dress which mean there will be two parts to this project -in progress
a costume for my son for the pic nic in july - done
a costume for my son for the medieval festival in september - done
something for me for the same event in september - cancelled , no time can be found
something for my honey if he ask earlier enough to match with us - same thing then me

I'm not sure yet which type of fabric I should use for my son.He's just a baby and I'm scare to use a fabric too hot for the summer.If he's like me , I'm not very tolerant to heat.Any suggestions?

  1. I would suggest a lightweight knit for your son's garb, same as you used for my daughter. Not period, but oh so comfortable for baby!
