This morning I preshrank the hobbit blouse fabric, so I've done something today sewing related. I got extra of this fabric so I could make a regency era fichu from it. There will be serious complaining about hand rolled hems. I begrudgingly hand sew only when it cannot possibly be avoided.
Tonight I also put some thought into my regency short gown /jacket which I'll need in late June. The style I'm aiming for is similar to a bodice sold by Meg Andrews http://www.meg-andrews.com/item-details/Hand-Block-Bodice/7384. I could use the Lewis & Clarke era dress pattern & substantially shorten it, with less fabric in the back.
However I also thought of the Northern Society of Costumes & Textiles pattern of the 1793 Dress of the Revolution (French).
