Stripes on the brain

I LOVE stripes.  I love them enough that I can say that off the top of my head probably about 1/4 or a 1/3 rd of my costumes have some sort of stripe.  So as you can imagine I'm pretty pumped about seeing what turns up on the Historical Sew Fortnightly's Stripe Challenge.  As planned I've been working on the Tissot gown for this challenge but I can't help pawing over my other striped fabrics and drooling over all the other historical stripey goodness out there on the web.  So I started a pinterest board just for stripes that fellow stripe hounds might enjoy.

  1. I'm also crazy about stripes! It's probably because you can create such interesting patterns and effects with them. And they look so great! Even a dull design looks better with stripes. That tissot dress is going to be so fabulous! Can't wait to see it finished.

    1. I totally agree, even the simplest garment design is can be made exciting by stripes.

      It's going to be hard to get as much done on it as I'd like with my kid's having random days off school! :P
