I hate it when i go to bed with a head ache and wake up with the same headache. It's going to be one of those days...
Yesterday was slightly productive. I made a trip to the fabric store for linings and thread and such like. Found some berries I like for my Regency bonnet too. Came home napped and threw everything in the washer.
On the sewing front I whipped up a bodiced petticoat. I used the bodice lining from the cross-over (which if memory serves was actually based on my Bee robe pattern) and the S&S regency skirt lining. Love that skirt lining pattern, I've used it for all sorts of things. It only took me three tries sewing the skirt on to get it right. I kept sewing things inside out. Silly.
The petticoat is made of linen I've been hoarding for a new shift. When I looked at the fabric this week though I decided it was too heavy for a shift but perfect for a petticoat. I like it, it reminds me of Lydia in P&P (1996) getting dressed for the ball. :>
I had Mom mark the hem for me of both the petticoat and the dress. While I had everything on I had Daddy take some pics so-so pics to prove it does look better on me than on Narcissa. Next time you see it will be at CC and hopefully without a headache. :P
Everything is hemmed now and I stitched in a length of narrow twill tape to reinforce the waist of the dress. next up trimming on the dress and hooks and eyes for the petticoat and I can officially cross them off my list - yay!
