I'm feeling much better today - yay! My summer cold seems to have been of the 48 hour variety which makes for a nice change. My more recent ailments have been of the 6 week variety! I do have another headache today though, which I'm not excited about.
So after some frustrations when I started work on my 1804 stays yesterday, I walked away, took a nap and life didn't seem so bad when I went back to it later in the day. I think I just needed that nap!
I decided life was too short to get so whigged out over a pair stays so I calmly took my filed pattern and the old pair of stays and did my best to reconcile them. Close enough I say! I even cut out the pieces from my fabric... I have lots left over if I made a horrible mistake but really I think it will be okay.
I'm now off to start constructing the stays. I'm eager to get the channel sewing behind me - it's so boring! Besides I think I have a cunning plan for a new Regency day dress that I can't work on until the stays are re-made... *wink*
