I'm still on an attachable collar, dickey, jabot, ascot kick. I have had great success sewing my own (a new red gingham one I need to show!), I knitted an ascot a bit back for a gift, and have also been expanding my vintage collection. This vintage crocheted jabot I found on etsy. It's charming.
The front part snaps off, so I can also wear it as just a collar. I was thrilled with this detail and I'm now looking to sew some removable flounces to the collars I have been making. There is this ongoing issue with wearing vintage collars and having them ride too high for most modern crewnecks—which are usually too low. This is an advantage to sewing new collars, I can make them a little lower. I need to draft some collars for the girls too, they love wearing them and it's pretty dang cute with whatever craziness they happen to have on.
on random life bit:
I'm almost done with the 3rd dress for our upcoming trip—to a dear friend's wedding and a side trip to Colonial Williamsburg. We are terribly excited. I still have 2 lace shawls and 3 mop caps to sew (the 3 mops caps I sewed last year have disappeared.) but then we will be ready!
Easter is coming and except for making a carrot cake today I feel woefully unprepared. We have had a lot of rain, garage flooding, a fallen out filling on one of the girls (she thinks it ended up behind the sofa stuck in some gum) a hurt back (that last dance class was so hard!) and a lot of long wakeful nights with the night girls getting the night spookies. But it's all good. My back is better now (a week and 4 chiropractor visits later) and the garage is now dry, so it can be used once again as a roller skate rink. We (Pete) dug our own french drain, which is what we are calling our trench we made with a shovel and some attitude. And the lost filling is getting replaced tomorrow.
