I may not have had the chance to wear these pieces yet, but I would still like to share some working pictures of them. A little regency collection!
I learned a lot from this project: everything apart from the spencer was hand sewn, no machine involved! My stitches have become very neat, I made a lot of bias tape, did a lot of pleating and learned to flat fell seams. I improvised the pattern of the spencer, and used up a lot of stash fabrics. I still might want to make a spencer (or maybe pelisse) by hand, though…
