The Regency Sewing Circle

Introducing the newly-forming Regency Sewing Circle.  Do you admire the beautiful Regency Era fashions? Would you love to have your own day dress or ball gown or both?  If you answered yes to either question, this is your opportunity create your own and build your very own Regency trousseau.  From petticoats to chemises and day dresses to ball gowns, the Regency Sewing Circle will be undertaking them all.

Seamstresses with all levels of experience are welcome to join.  All you need is a portable sewing machine and basic sewing supplies.

 


~ Next Meeting: May 21st ~

·         The Sewing Circle will meet monthly for 3-hour sessions on Sunday afternoons.  A standard Sunday
          to meet will be established but is yet to be determined.

·         Participants need only have a portable sewing machine and basic sewing supplies (scissors, etc.)
·         The project list thus far includes, in order of undertaking:
                              Chemise
                              Corset
                              Petticoat
                              Day Dress
                              Ball Gown

·         As the group progresses, trims, rossettes, reticules, bonnet trimming, etc. will be explored
·         Guest experts will be invited periodically
·         Participants will pre-pay for each project.  Most materials will be ordered in bulk to save money,
          time, and confusion
·         For the undergarments (chemise, corset, and petticoat), everyone will use the same pattern.  
          For the dresses everyone will choose our own pattern.

          Mark  you calendar for these possible upcoming sewing sessions:
