I know I have not posted everyday on this blog as per the CoBloWriMo challenge was designed to do. I have two reasons for this: I don't have any thing to post on some challenge topics, and life seems to have gotten even busier as the summer started. So I will post as I can.
Today the topic is to give a progress report on something we are working on. In my first post I said I wanted to work on the Travel challenge for the Historical Sew Monthly group.
I have made some progress. I cut out and sewed my daughter's dress.
I will post pictures of the finished dress later when we do a photo shoot.
For my Regency Travel dress I am using Simplicity 4055 and adjusting the front of the bodice to criss cross. I am also going to eliminate the tie at the neck and the waist in favor of a button or hook and eye closing in the back.
I have thought about using a trim around the neckline as in this inspiration painting. I have not gotten out to look for any yet. So onward I go.
Keep checking back. I will get this one done!
