Shaping up...



The Regency dress has come along nicely.  Here's snap of Patience on my workdesk - scalped, poor thing.  You can just see her regular wig on the desk to the left of the picture.




It's a tad soggy at the moment, because I've styled it. I do this with all my skirts, or I find they look a bit balloon-y.

I need to make a short-sleeved version, and then start work on the bonnet, so a fair way to go yet, but at least now I know the pattern works.  I was a bit of a twit in using some expensive custom-printed fabric to make the first version, but I got lucky.    I really do recommend using a cheaper fabric for working out a new design.
