Historical Sew Fortnightly: Challenge 1



Yet again at the last minute, I finished a regency recticule:

The Challenge: #1: Bi/Tri/Quadri/Quin/Sex/Septi/Octa/Nona Centennial

Fabric: Silk Faille, lined with polished cotton

Pattern: http://s269.beta.photobucket.com/user/DawnLuck/media/Retucule%20Pattern/049.jpg.html?sort=6&o=21

Year: 1813

Notions: Thread, ribbon

How historically accurate is it?:  Dunno.  Used a sewing machine, so not that.  Historically accurate fabrics, but rayon ribbon.

Hours to complete: maybe 1.  I took this one easy.

Total cost: all stash, so $0



I'm finishing my bustle dress next week, so to get a head start on that I wanted an easy challenge #1.
