I have been absolutely wretched about updating. I never knew it would be so hard to juggle two blogs, several writing endeavors, and two online webcomics (but now that I think of it: duh!). So I am feeling like something must go. I don't want it to be this paper doll blog, however, because I enjoy this little space away from all of my other projects. While I look for balance, however, I hope you will be patient with my non-updating!
As an appeasement, I've added a category specifically for "fashion plates". When I get bogged down on other stuff, I promise at the very least I will post pretty pictures of 19th century fashions from the period (like the one at the left! Click to see more details, as always).
And I really am still working. I have some dresses on the docket but I just haven't had the focus to sit still and actually paint them. I am hoping to do so this weekend. I admit, part of my hesitation is the whole color issue, but I guess I have to tackle it eventually. One way or another, I promise I will have some clothing done over the weekend and posted by next week (after which I am visiting with family and so things may go a little quiet again for a short spell).
This particular fashion plate, by the way, is from Peterson's Magazine, 1859.
