So we switch from the 18th century to the 19th! I told you the CADD was running rampant around here. I was inspired to start on a new bodice for my spotty dress. I had a little over a yard left of the spotted silk and while I love the original dress, I just dont enjoy things around my neck like that. Plus, I love the idea of having multiple bodices for the same skirts. Its very economical. ;)
I've been having a hard time deciding what to work on lately. You see, I have a very bad case of CADD (Costumer's ADD). I dont have any pressing deadlines so I have to motivation to stick with one project. Its a weakness, I know. With that in mind, I started my latest finished project on a whim one day last week. I suddenly had a strong urge to make a fancy 18th century short cloak. I wanted something that would be nice for spring or fall. A quick rummage through my stash and this is what I came up with:

Continuing the series, the next accessory I picked up for my Victorian naturalist outfit is a really cool antique field microscope and set of antique microscope slides.
