Motivation for fighting a Mundane Monday

Mondays can often be downers. It’s the beginning of yet another work week. That’s 5 whole days before you’re free, be it to craft and create or to attend the next event. But instead of letting the weight of a new week stifle my creativity or energy I’ve collected some links to use as inspiration. I’m sharing them here to give you a little Motivation for fighting Mundane Mondays.

Week of  September 1, 2014

1. Samantha shared some up close ups on her Riding Habit Construction. I am interested to try the Center back seam construction where she put all 4 pieces together and sewed them at the same time. I have a feeling I will have a 'mind blown' moment.

2. Lauren of Wearing History launched her Kickstarter. I would love to see her vision come to life. I love everything about it, from the Vintage Ready to wear clothing, to a company that is trying to keep everything domestic.

3. Fashion Through History posted about the Prom dress she made for her sister. I think I like it better then the dress she used as inspiration!

4. I've had Regency on my mind lately. In my search for Sari and Shawl dresses I stumbled across this one from The Laced Angel Blog. 

5. Speaking of Regency research. I started looking into the underthings. Its been years since I last attempted anything Regency. 

Not only do I need bigger ones but my skills have increased and I want these to reflect that. I think I am going to use a combination of these two site for making a new chemise. This one and this one.

6. Peryn-wn on Livejournal shared her recreation of the Louisbourg Gown. LOTS of pictures and info on how she did it. My favorite part is her close ups of her embroidery. 

7. Dragon Con pictures are starting to roll in. I am sure there are tons more pictures out there but here are just a few sites I've found., and Flickr.

8. Trystan made a book themed dress for the Costume College gala. What a fun way to show support for your friend's endeavors.
