Slow Progress...

College and sewing do not mix. I have been so busy with school work that practically nothing has gotten done since summer. I have slowly been working on my regency gown which I believe has reached a turning point. Sleeves are being attached and then everything has to be hemmed and finished. Working without a pattern and hand stitching the whole thing is definitely time consuming but it will be worth it in the end (I hope!). Here is what I have so far.

And might I add, "Costume in Detail" is the best historical costume reference book ever created. The library will not be getting that book back for awhile.
