So my husband asked yesterday, what would he wear with a kilt? For those who know my husband, he does not like to get too much attention and likes to stay in the back ground. For him to ask is very out of the norm. I have thrown together a kilt, vest and shirt we already had, he is using our daughters kilt from several years ago, a shirt and vest we already use, just ordered a new pair of boots., will post pictures of the full outfit later.

So to dress down from my usual noble garb I made a linen peasant dress

2014 costume plans and projects

Getting ready for Costume College, plans made and costumes started

Started a gown from Janet Arnold
Loved this one from Before the Automobile
Gown is drafted straight from the book

Took a break and started Maleificent and her Dragon

Got back to work on the Arnold gown need it done for the Pink tea

So it's been a while since I update so I thought I would share everything I have made since my last update
Hoops in progress for Glinda The Good Witch
I also was working on a pirate outfit for my husband, with the help from my friend Jennie who sewed the trim.

I helped my daughter with her renaissance dress
Made my own Pirate coat
Made my mom this outfit and showed Jennie how to make hers

Designed this one for my mom
Made a couple of bustles

This was all the costumes for 2013, the rest of the year was all about family
my daughter joined the Navy and we went to her boot camp graduation
Lost my grandfather
My granddaughter met her great uncle
Took a cruise with my husband

Kaity came home for a Christmas visit, made my sister cry
