It is another blistering day in the Great State of Ohio - 103 degrees Fahrenheit! It's not a record, though. On July 21, 1934, the mercury hit 113! How our ancestors lived through this, I will never know - it wasn't like air conditioning was a common convenience in that day. However, relief is in sight. I cannot believe I am anticipating a 93 degree day, but I am, and it's tomorrow, along with some much needed rain. Ohio is also experiencing a drought, as are many other states in the Midwest.
Although the short stays did not work out, I decided to drape and fit a new set of Regency long stays. I do like my current stays, however, I want a corded pair.

And finally, I constructed a simple sleeveless petticoat from a soft bleached linen to wear under a wrap dress I am making for this year's Regency picnic in September.
I would like to start working on my Regency wrap dress this week - I am constructing it from a pea-green voile, I just need to get over to the fabric store for thread. (I have drawers of thread, so you'd think I'd have something close in color - nope! What's one more spool, right? lol!)
