I actually did some sewing yesterday, working on the mockup for my voile regency gown.
This was attempt #1:
Back of attempt #1
I liked the look of this one, except right along the shoulder strap, where there was some pulling and gapping in odd places.
This morning I made another mockup. I didn’t bother gathering the front very well, because I was more focused on the shoulder strap area.
I like the feel of attempt #2 better. Now I need to fiddle around with the sleeves.
