I had this whole plan to bang it all out tonight, and wear the refashion in a blaze of glory tomorrow. Needless to say, I got distracted.
So, instead I will tell you about two books I got recently. '7000 Years of Jewelry' and 'Costume in Detail 1730 to 1930' I'm enjoying both immensely. Costume in Detail includes descriptions of how they are made, the materials used, and construction information. The Jewelry one includes examples from all over the world, and is just nifty because I like shiny things, costume and history.
Happy last day of May.
