Making 18th Century Stays + Chemise | Simplicity 8162 Review

Sewing 18th Century undergarments using a easy and simple pattern from Simplicity.

Yes, you read the title right, I really did make a pair of 18th-century stays (or corset) and a chemise! 

For the last couple of years, I've been somewhat obsessed with late 18th century fashions and after learning about the Fete De La Nouvelle France festival where people are invited to wear their own 1700s garments I decided to make my own 18th-century gown that would be semi-historically accurate and fun to wear. 

And the best place to start is with the correct undergarments. Specifically, it meant making a pair of 18th centuries stays that would give the correct body shape/style of the era align with an era-appropriate chemise using Simplicity 8162.

 And while they are not perfect, they are super cute and  I'm absolutely proud of them!

Easy Bread Pudding | Quick + Simple

Happy Spring and happy April! 

Today I will be sharing with you one of my favorite recipes: Bread Pudding. It is super easy and quick to make and I mainly love it because it is the perfect recipe for when you have more bread than you can eat or if you have a sugar craving! This bread pudding recipe is also a great addition to your brunches as they are not too sweet and somewhat healthy (lol!)
