Finally! Actual pictures of one of my sewing projects! ;) Here is the incomplete (but nearly finished) bodice of the Regency gown I am making. What do you think of that amazing brocade fabric? I thought it had a very old-fashioned, elegant, almost Colonial-era touch to it.
The bodice neckline will be gathered - for now I pinned it flat to the dress form. It was given to me recently by my Nonno (grandfather.) Wasn't that sweet? I am hoping to eventually acquire a full length, adjustable dress form, but this will do for now! - trying to think up a good name for her. Any suggestions?
The sleeves still need binding and like I mentioned above the neckline needs gathering. (Sorry about the messy strings all over the place.) Other then THAT I am very pleased with my work so far. ;) Lord willing I will soon have an Esty shop started! :)
...now to tackle the skirt placket. Yikes. o.O
