It's been...years

April 20th, 2010 (09:36 am)

After several long moves and another child, I am back! And...pregnant again. I am due in November and everything has been super crazy. We also bought a house and have a garden which is really exciting.

In other news, I am working on four American Revolution time period reenactment costumes. One for myself, my 9 year old daughter, 8 year old son, and my 2 year old toddler. The 5 year old is not interested. ;) I have the child stays and shift for my 9 year old almost done and I am conceptualizing the pregnancy jumps I am making for myself. I found only a couple pictures online and have been working it out in my head. I made a cardboard mockup that has not gone so well, so that is back to the drawing board. I am thinking front and side ties if I do boned stays or just front ties for lightly boned jumps. I just can't for the life of me find good jumps pictures to go off of from extant pieces and Diderot's diagram confused me.

Will post progress pictures later!
