Started on the stomacher today. I WILL get the outfit done this summer!

Finished walking stick! <3

I’ve finally put together my extremely cheap walking stick!

To remind you: I got this awesome black bamboo stick for 10 SEK (about 1 EUR, 1,55 USD and not even 1 GBP)! It’s actually a garden decoration, but it’s straight, light and hard – plus it totally has that chinoise air! The knob is a curtain rod knob I got second hand for 5 SEK (about 0,50 EUR, 0,78 USD and 0,50 GBP). More about where I got the materials in this post.

So I’ve spent about 1,50 EUR, or 2,33 USD, or about 1,50 GBP on this beauty. Smiling Fox Forge’s walking stick is $50 – without the chinoise air! ;P The total length is about 147 cm.

Plus!

Have you seen the FREE 18th century patterns LACMA has published on the site? Among other patterns, you can find one for this waistcoat:

A little over representation of male garments maybe, but still! ;P

New pet-en-l’air inspiration

Nicole of Diary of a Mantua Maker just posted an image of this loveliness:

Now I really need to finish my outfit! At least if I want to use it this summer… =S
