So… 2014 have come around and hopefully i’ll make more this year than last one. I planning to be a part of the HSF’14 and hopes to complete all. I do not think I will do so. But a dream is a dream. The themes is so fare:
#1 – Make do and Mend
For this challenge am I planning some 1940 kickers and underwear. I have been wanting to do WW2 reenactment for a long time, and finally have I found a group there also uses us women for more than cooking and nursing. In Denmarks Danforce Brigade we learned to use rifles, machineguns and grenades. So I will be doing a lot of 1940 thing this year!
Here is the pattern I will be using. It is from www.veravenus.com
#2 – Innovations
I have been giving this challenge a lot of thought. But do not know what to make! Give me some ideas!
#3 – Pink
For this will I sew a pink 1940 bra. I have wanted to use a pattern from Jill Salens book “Vintage Lingerie” for a long time now. Now is the chance!
#4 – Under it all
Another pattern from Jill Salens boom will be used for this one. No girl in the 1940s could live without a suspenderbelt. And it is also going to be pink!
#5 – Bodice
For my new 1940 uniform I need a jacket. I have already found a pattern which will only need a few adjustments.
#6 – Fairytales
I would love to make something related to the Danish author Hans Christian Andersen. But I do not know what in this moment. I need inspiration.
#7 – Tops and Toes
In this challenge will I modify a Chinese parasol to become an 18th century parasol. It is so exiting. First time trying this and the first time making something from this era.
But for my 1940 Lotte uniform will I also need a shirt, a hat and skirt. So much to do!
I would also love to make a 18th century wardrobe, and especially a stay.
