Regency Reflections...

After a week of sporadic sewing
and getting reacquainted with my seam ripper,
I sewed my last stitch on my recent regency gown.

The fabric is similar to linen (though I'm not sure exactly what it is).
It is a darker shade of blue
with a lighter blue, cotton lining in the skirt.
I decided to forgo the buttons, again,
and go with another zipper in the back,
which is convenient in many ways.

Overall, a pleasant outcome and a delightful experience
(other than the reacquainting I encountered)....

My beloved likes it, too, and that, certainly, made it worth sewing. ;o)

I had to smile, my seam ripper and I are the best of friends and the worst of friends at the same time. Bet you understand that. lol

WOW I was just in Wal Mart looking at fabrics (for a scout project) today & saw the patterns for clothing.

I told my DH that I'd like to try learning to sew with a machine.
