Here is the nearly finished spencer, sewing the velvet was not actually as bad as I expected it to be, the walking foot on the sewing machine saved my life. If you don’t have a walking foot I would strongly advise it, it pretty much eliminates layers of fabric sliding in the wrong direction.
I forgot to put the corset on underneath for the fitting, and Hanna had a padded bra on, this is the reason for the pulling across the front. I need to remember the correct foundations next time.
Just the buttons left to do.
