I’ve been hand quilting a waistcoat for the Weald & Downland Museum & thought you might like to see it. Baasically, it’s a 17th century bodywarmer. The top is a fine pale green wool, there’s carded sheeps wool in the centre and a linen backing. It’s quilted with linen thread which has to be waxed.
This is the waistcoat quilted & ready to be made up.
I decided to show a couple of Me Made May outfits because I particularly like them.
This is a refashioned (altered & dyed) skirt and a top made from another skirt.
This is my favourite top. I made it from a Liberty Print skirt I found in a charity shop. Those are my me made shoes too. I’ve worn them most days this month. The trousers are Olsen from a charity shop.
Some days I’ve only got one visible me made but I always wear my me made knickers, so that’s two. (In answer to Curtise).
I’ve got a dress in progress at the moment so I will have something new to wear this month. Hooray!
Happy Wednesday everyone!
