The performance I am making the lady and footman costumes for has been lengthened slightly, it now involves the two characters walking outside for part of it. It’s only for a short while so the footman costume is warm enough, but the lady only had a short sleeved dress; not suitable for a March evening.
So I made a very quick toile for a spencer. As usual the pattern doesn’t go small enough, so I reduced it further. It’s still a bit big, but I’m planning on making it out of velvet which is obviously thicker.
I know they’re right, but the sleeves look a bit ridiculous to me, maybe its the green, but they’re really not the most flattering.
