Change of Plans

Brief change of sewing plans. Although I was planning to jump into the s-bend corset, I've signed up to do a pattern test for a new Laughing Moon Regency dress, so I'm switching gears to that. Or at least, I will be shortly. I want to finish cutting out the mockup of the corset and then I plan to sew it together, because I don't want to lose any of the pieces. I've cut out about 2/3 of them so far, I think, since I really didn't get any sewing time last week.  Once that is assembled, it will be put aside for the regency dress. 

Ideally, I'd love to whip it up really quickly. I'm going to a Regency event on Saturday, so if I can get it wearable by then, that would be fabulous! Of course, naturally, I'm still torn on just what I want to do. I have a piece of red/black changeable silk taffeta that I've had in the stash for a few years, and it is only 4 5/8 yds, so it's almost definitely enough for this, but not enough for basically any other era. So that's what I'm leaning towards. But at the same time, I'd really like a versatile day-to-evening dress that I can add long sleeves to, if I want to. And it seems like there's more cotton dresses like that than there are silk. I know as of a couple weeks ago, Joanns still had that semi-sheer dobby stripe, but I don't really want a white dress for this. In fact, I found a green dress that I kind of love, but then again, I don't look good in that shade of green. 

Naturally, all this indecisiveness is really unconducive to actually finishing this project by Saturday morning... That said, I only have rehearsal one night this week (though I am at least planning to see one movie this week) so who knows what might happen!

These are a few of the dresses I'm most inspired by right now:
