Regency Reticule

I was blessed with a wonderful day off today. I was very domestic and spent my day cleaning, walking the pups, and sewing, while watching my "girly costume movies." My new pattern came, as you know from my previous post I recieved my new regency gown pattern. Not only does this excellent pattern contain numerous gown options, but it also contains two patterns for a reticule (basically a Regency Era purse) as well as embroidery patterns taken from extant costumes. I hand stitched my own little reticule from scrap fabric. It took me about 3 hours total, the embroidery portion took the bulk of my time. But here it is, a very easy, and pretty little reticule. Enjoy :-)

The pattern, The Elegant Ladies Closet, can be found here...
