Btw, “The North Georgia Gazette, and Winter Chronicle“ (Parry’s Arctic newspaper) was published on their return and can be read here.


Underneath the fanciful there’s loads of day-to-day details that never make it into the official narratives.

Lopez, Arctic Dreams:

This article identifies many of the contributors, based on Parry’s annotations in a copy of the published version.

Xylophone Progress XII: Complete


The actual construction went swimmingly. I used the organza interlining to invisibly hem the garment all around, then fell-stitched the lining in place at ¼ inch clearance from the edge.

I made this choice because in all the images I found, it seemed very clear that the stage xylophone has absolutely no fashion-fabric facing. The lining goes right up to the edge:

(If you check out the shoulder, that image also confirms that the stage xylophone has wool fronts only. I used red silk-cotton for the backing.) 

But if you want linings to double as facings, you either have to line with no slack/ease at all, or edge-finish the garment in some other way so that the lining doesn’t have to be responsible for keeping the edges neatly turned. Hence the hemming. The organza kept it nice and invisible:

As you can see, the hem and prickstitching can’t be seen from the outside. I’m pretty happy with how that turned out!

Hoping it arrives safe and sound! This was a really great experience.
