Midnight Blue Embroidered Regency Spencer

My lovely friends gave me a couple patterns from Sense and Sensibility for my birthday and I couldn't wait to try them out! Here is my first try at a Regency Spencer:
I added tabs to the front and made buttons and embroidered them:
As well as added a touch of embroidery on the collar:

The fabric was so thick, I pleated it instead of gathering. I like the way it looks!

Back View: (don't you just love those diamond shaped backs?)
I used leftover fabric from my dad's pirate coat and lined it with leftover fabric from my Jane Bennet Jacket.
It's now available in my Etsy Shop!

Wow! Your work is so beautiful! how long have you been designing cloths?

Thanks Jackey!
I'm not sure when I started designing clothes...I think I held my first needle when I was about 5 and I designed little clothes for my dolls. I've probably been into costuming for about 9 years now. Always progressing and learning new stuff though...:)
Thanks for stopping by my blog!
