I don't have a lot to report this week. I spent a lot of time "researching" for Costume Con (read: playing Okami). I did get some work done on my Sew Fortnightly project, a regency petticoat:
It's pretty simple, a tube pleated to a band as big as my underbust. I've sewn the skirt seam and the waistband on by hand, but I sewed the foldover by hand and I'm working on hand-finishing the inside of the skirt seam. When I'm done I'll add on some shoulder straps to keep it in place and a button and hand-worked buttonhole. I'm using the selvedge as the hem. I also hope to add in a small bustle pad before I'm done next monday.
