Sewing for a baby bump are hard. Just wanted you all to know that!
We're going to a wedding next month for some of our reenacting friends, it's being held in a Mansion in the countryside and they are having a Gerogian ceremony and ball the first day and a Regency picnic the second day! Sounds like it's going to be one epic wedding, and I cannot wait! Only trouble is, only 2 of my Regency dresses fit, (and you know how huge my selection is, none of my spencers and pelises fit either, BTW) and not a single one of my Georgian gowns fits. None. Not even the sack backs with the internal ties let out :( they would fit over the bump but not round my chest. Not only has my ribcage expanded [from a 32 to a 36 band size] but my boobs have got enormous!) So I've spent the last week or so of my Easter holiday from school making a silk chemise dress for the wedding, and now I'm going to have a go at a gathered low necked sencer, like Mdme du Jard's Spencerino: http://mmedujard.blogspot.co.uk/search/label/spencerino and this one from Kleidung um 1800: http://kleidungum1800.blogspot.co.uk/2012/07/ein-hauch-von-sommer.html
We've got a Regency dance demo on Sunday which is inside, but a spencer might be usefull if it's cold, so I'm hoping to get the spencer done for that, and then I might make a cotton print chemise dress for the day of the wedding, leaving the silk for the ball in the evening, just in case it's either raining or hot and sweaty, two equally likely options for the middle of May in England!
