What I'm up to! A Regency beaded dress

While I generally don't like to use this blog for in progress updates, I'm far enough into my current project and it's going to take all of my time for the foreseeable future, so I thought I'd make an exception.

A few years ago, I found this beaded dress at the Met and instantly fell in love. I finally decided that I needed to make it.


Here's where I am now. The bodice is done, and the hem is started. That's the neckline, cuff, and hem in the picture. I'm not sure how much of the original hem I'm going to be able to copy and have it ready for my deadline, but I'm feeling rather ambitious about the whole thing :)

Wish me luck!
