Watch for video about the walking stick that greeted me at the Antiques, Etc. door! I thought I’d have difficulty finding a local match for Martha Corinne’s cane, but found one easily, and inexpensively, too! About $17.00 CAD. Video should be on my channel this weekend. 🙂
The outfit is finished and I’m happy with the components I managed to come up with in time for its feature in Costube Symposium 2021. I would like to acquire a pair of historically accurate boots and will be on the lookout for those. Today, however, I visited one of our local antique stores for the first time in quite awhile and immediately upon entering I was faced with the accessory I expected to have some difficulty acquiring locally. On the contrary, it fairly greeted me at the door! I’ll be uploading a video about it as soon as possible. 🙂
I purchased a couple of antique brooches from Etsy- including the one pictured. It is shown more thoroughly in the photo on my Contact page. There will be video about those, as well, on the Martha Corinne Walton playlist on my YouTube channel.
I picked up some very cool souvenir spoons at Antiques, Etcetera, also. More about them to follow, too. 🙂 Now that I’m nearly done with the Martha Corinne project, I’m going to get back to work on my close-up magic wildlife set. I discuss that a little in part 4 of the Martha Corinne dress video series, which will be uploaded sometime in the next week.
This skirt was a pair of pants. Came with the “jacket” as a set. Linen. I think the pants were too small, or otherwise not to my liking, so I decided to convert or “upcycle” them into a titanic era inspired skirt. I like the silhouette heading from Edwardian into the 1910s and eventually into the dropped waist twenties. Watch for a video on this upcycle/thrift flip/completed UFO (unfinished object) coming soon to my YouTube channel. Thanks to my sister, Tracey, for the photo.
