Rainy days....

It was a very muggy, rainy day yesterday.  Had alot to do to get ready for the FR Convention, but instead decided to do some sewing so pulled out some items from my stash. I am still working on the frock coat jacket for this, but the fit on the skirt was fabulous. I altered the pattern a bit to fit Royal Monaco Vanessa...









I have more work to do on this outfit, it was amazing how quickly it went along. I literally made the blouse from scratch and used the embroidered part as a frontal decor- with the open back which is not period correct but looks pretty cool...Ihad to redraft alot  of the patterns that I had in my stash. Have been wanting to do another Victorian ensemble, hopefully can do more. Enjoy!~Lisa
