So, there has been water pouring out of the ceiling in 2 of my 3 bathrooms since 4pm. I can hear water pouring down the inside of the walls behind the 3rd bathroom. They JUST sent the plumber who is now going upstairs to see what's going on with that, but now my whole house stinks like wet plaster and I am quite sure we'll have stinking walls and mold from now until doomsday.

On top of that, I kept Claire's door closed to keep it from getting stinky in there and I walked in there to EVEN MORE STINK than the rest of the place. Her radiator is spewing steam up the wall that is now hotter than hades, and the carpet is wet around it. Different problem, same stink.

Me No Happy. :-(

Obligatory costume content: Effigy Stays - only 10 eyelets left to do. New Hoops - butt pillow is jettisoned; the whole thing looks great with the new bumroll worn under it.

You know, I've been making Elizabethan clothing for over 25 years, and have been doing it fairly well for at least a few of those, but every time I deviate from my tried & true undergarments to make something new, I feel like I'm starting over again to get the damn thing right. *sigh* Ah well, it will be cool when they're done.

Ok, I've made 3 new bum rolls and I HATE the way they all look with the new hoops. WTF??? I just can't get them to sit right on the little butt-pillow, and the hoops angle to the front without the pillow. I'm gettin' downright angry at this thing.

More and more of the little buggers *ahem* lacing eyelets are getting covered with pretty pink floss. :-) I'm almost done with front and back holes on one side.

For the new hoops, I had to get more supplies to finish them so I didn't last night, but now I have to make a new bum roll, too. I made them from the Tudor Tailor pattern and I really like the shape of the hoops and how the little butt-pillow keeps the whole thing resting to the back; however, my bum roll sits too high on the pillow. If I unstuff the pillow a bit that will probably shift the skirt too far forward or make the back angle down, so now I need to make a wider but smaller diameter roll.
