Sewing Week Report

Last week was an unusually busy week of sewing. Rebecca came to stay for our belated annual 'sewing week' and we were determined to be the two most productive seamstresses in the history of historical sewing.

 Our goal was sewing items for the Jane Austen convention. So, with the aid of several movies, chocolate-chip cookie dough brownies, and the delightfully cool weather,

Our combined accomplishments were:

5 dresses
2 weskits
3 bodiced petticoats
2 ruffled caps
2 aprons
1 morning robe

for a total of 15 items in 4 1/2 days!

(of which we are not unreasonably proud....)

Sadly we didn't really take any pictures during the course of the week. We were rather- busy. Later we have planned a mammoth photo shoot. 

 But to suffice for now are a few sketches and one sneak peak of a red and gold ball gown.....

Hope everyone is doing wonderfully! I'm counting down the days to the Jane Austen convention, looking forward to being done with this crazy huge sewing project!
