I have a navy-blue linen Regency jumper in the works; initially drafted a simple bodice (I should have known better), which turned out frumpy - No, it's just bad...
Immediately removed the bodice from the skirt and began anew - much better! (Note: this is the bodice lining; the bodice itself will be gathered to the skirt and not pleated):
Now that the bodice and lining are joined together in holy stitchery, I can finish the remainder of the jumper - whew!
Happy Friday and have a safe, warm, and wonderful weekend! Blessings and happy sewing!
