Sewing Again

Well, as you all know, my sewing has significantly dropped this year. My personal life has been extremely busy and, as I said in a previous post, my sewing was the only thing that I could take a break from. Things have finally calmed down a bit and I am ready to start sewing some new things. Many of you also know that the Oregon Regency Society is having their 2nd Annual Retreat this summer and I plan to attend. This, of course, means that I will need some new things to wear. I have a very full wardrobe, but one cannot have too many gowns :) So, here are a few plates and images for inspiration. Enjoy!


I have a printed muslin that would make a lovely open robe, similar to this one.


I have another printed muslin that would work well for this style. However, I’m planning to make the sleeves 3/4 length because the retreat is in August :)


The robe on the left would be quite lovely in the red silk that currently sits in my stash.


And of course, it’s time to make a new chemise gown for the season. I typically make at least one a year, due to wear and tear.

Have a lovely weekend! I should hopefully have some progress photos for you in the next few days.

Love Lauren

Words cannot express how happy I am that you and the lovely Mrs. Cartwright are attending the retreat. I hope that you have as much fun as you anticipate and I can not wait to see your lovely wardrobe. I am cutting into my own georgian-esqe fabric in my stash tomorrow...wish me luck!
