Well we saw the apartment we are moving into and all is a go!! We sign the papers this weekend and the Rebecca wants to move in next week. I don't think she fully took in the fact that I work and Monday through Friday job 8 to 5. Though, it looks like things might work out just fine. I'm just a natural worry wort type of person. I like to have all my ducks in row and make sure I think of all 20 angles to make sure nothing will go awry.
Aside from moving stuff, I just heard that Butterick Patterns has redone their Regency pattern. I think most Regency enthusiasts would agree with me in saying this pattern is bollocks. This pattern is made for a modern day figure without taking in the account that Regency stays (or corset) are needed to give you the proper silhouette. I feel like this pattern could turn south and give many women the pregnant silhouette that all women try to avoid. If you have a properly fitted set of stays and dress you love, all women can avoid looking frumpy and pregnant. If you're looking for a quick, simple make this is for you. Though I feel you will be stuck with an ill-fitting dress you may never want to wear again.
Check out the pattern here.
There are many options available for those who look to start up in Regency re-enactment, do not give up hope. Keep on searching or if you find there is a dead end, you could always create a group your self. Sometimes people just need a little encouragement that they're not the only ones out there.
Until next time intrawebs. Enjoy this picture of the oodles and oodles of buttons I scored....for free!!!
