It has been FAR to long since I've made a Regency dress. It seems as if the dozens I made a few years back wore me out being "stuck" in that time period with limited other projects for variety. The fabric I'm using this week is perfect for a Regency dress. Pictures will most likely be up tomorrow or the following day.
Earlier today I sewed up a toile bodice of a 1940s Swing Dress. One of my sisters will be going to a Retro-Diner themed dinner at P4C2013 with Vision4Living Ministries later this fall, and I'm in charge of sewing up her dress. She chose a gorgeous fabric and I can hardly wait to cut into it! However we were both SO glad that the time was taken to sew a mockup. Not only did it help in knowing where alterations need to be done, but also a trial run through with a new-to-me pattern.
Sometime before I leave in the next couple weeks I have hopes in sewing a white Edwardian afternoon dress (similar to this one that I have regrets in selling!), but there is so much to be done that it may have to wait until next summer. One of these days a full set of "unmentionables" is on my "to-sew" list.
What are all my friends and blog readers working on this week?
