Well, it's been over a week since I've posted! My three regular readers must be in withdrawal! ;) In previous months, I've managed my blog by creating a long queue of posts (often written multiple posts in a single marathon session) which I schedule for upcoming Mondays and Thursdays. Then I ignore my blog for a while and work on sewing and photographing things while the blog marches on without me. I check in to see if people have commented. What happened last week was that I ran out of scheduled posts at a time when I was too busy to make more, and hence the dry spell. However, being busy with work is, as my Dad says, "the right kind of problem"!

HSM 2017 October - Robe de style
Meanwhile, she is loved by an English soldier. Things get tragic. Honestly, I didn't find it all that interesting, despite it having such dramatic elements. Despite all the politics, love triangles, and bloodshed, the part I remember best was the rather odd garment worn by the young lady to a ball... a flat-chested boxy bodice with large skirt poofing out from the hips. I thought it was very unflattering.
Quilting, dressmaking, and history plied with the needle...
