Bits and Bobs

*  Cool post from Two Nerdy History Girls on an 18th Century Scottish Highland wedding dress.  What I was most interested in was the pdf from the which shows construction details of the dress, not quite a pattern but close for anyone wanting to make their own "Outlander" style Scottish gown.

* Aubry of A Fractured Fairytale has a couple of great post on making an using a split bum roll.  It really creates the look we've come to love in so many of the "big butt" fashions of the 1780s.

*  Jennifer of Historical Sewing has a great article up on flatlining skirts.  She gives a lot of great detail on when to flatline and which fabrics to use.

* Spirit Halloween Stores have some nice, inexpensive Game of Thrones pieces for sale this season.  Joffrey's crown, the Hand of the King pin and Melissandra's necklace among others.

* Laura of Shear Madness found a great tutorial for patterning foam for costumes.  Some of the stuff Ludi has made with this method is pretty amazing.

*  Just FYI - I go in for my next surgery on Tuesday so I may miss doing Bits and Bobs next week, but I do have a few other posts in the works before then, including step-by-step pictures of my first embroidered bird for the new Cersei gown.
