Long time no post

I can't believe the last time I blogged was in February! Sad to say, I haven't sewed at all.


Because March 1st, I found out I was pregnant. It was completely unplanned. So to say I was shocked is an understatement. However, I am excited about having a baby. I am due on Halloween. I am having a boy :)

(The little guy is playing with his feet in this picture. So cute!)

I'm going to miss NYCC, the ren faire, Halloween this year. I won't have a costumes and I haven't sewed anything because I know I am just going to outgrow whatever I make. I've already gone up two cup sizes and went from a 34 to a 38 band size. Plus all of those events are at the end of my pregnancy. I'll probably be uncomfortable, and babies rarely come out when they're supposed to.

I do miss sewing, and I can't wait to get back into it. I have a lot planned. I've picked up four Truly Victorian patterns that I cannot wait to use. They are:

-Truly Victorian 1881 Imperial skirt
-Truly Victorian 1870's underskirt
-Truly Victorian  1860's ball gown bodice
-Truly Victorian 1860's ball gown skirt

The last two will be used for a period twist on Belle's yellow ball gown from Beauty and the Beast. The first two patterns will be used for Christine's Elissa skirt from The Phantom of the Opera. I am going to try to combine the first two TV patterns so that I get the underskirt I need, but also get the nice back panel featured in the first pattern.

I still plan to make all of the other costumes I have planned. I'm confident that once I have the baby and get a routine going, I'll find the time to sew. I know newborns and infants are pretty demanding, but I won't be doing everything on my own. My boyfriend has been really supportive and I know he'll help me out.
