So, I've had the concept of this outfit planned out for at least two years. I'm so happy I finally finished it.
Here are some of the inspirations for the spencer:
- At Augusta Auctions and the main spencer I was looking at
- A fun yellow one
- One I like only because it's the only example I can find where it's not self trim or the same colored trim
- One of the three at the Met I kept staring at
I used the Sense and Sensibility pattern as a base and edited to fit what I wanted it to look like. Yeah, I know - the mock up fabric looks like Scooby Doo and the Mystery Van crashed into it. That is why it's mock up fabric.
I didn't have enough time to roll the bias ribbon trim I made to decorate the front of the spencer, S I folded it over as best I could. It doesn't look bad - just not as thin as I would like.
I'm so glad I finally got this outfit DONE. I might redo the skirt a bit but the spencer doesn't need anymore work.
