Hey! Look over there!

In an attempt to distract you from the fact that it has been over a month since my last post, and the typewriter revamp STILL isn’t done, I present you with this:

That would be one small part of the Christmas presents I received from my aunt. She got me a whole box of dresses and skirts from the 1950s. None of them fit, since most of them have a 24-30 inch waist and I….don’t, but most of them are lovely and I’m enjoying converting them into something closer to my size. This example was once a dress that almost fit, but was far too tight in the shoulders to be practical. I also made a crinoline slip to go underneath, though that still needs some work, I think.

Though the revamp isn’t complete, I can offer this teaser image of the Royalite. What you see in the platen is a review I will be posting soon.

More to come. Stay tuned.
