It took me longer than expected to complete the matching Spencer to the navy blue linen jumper. The Spencer is hand-sewn for the greater part, except for the piping and ruching detail, which are machined. Like the jumper, the Spencer is closed with punched metal buttons. Digital imagery is terrible when it comes to trying to capture color, particularly blue and black. The blue of the Spencer (and jumper) is very dark, and the piping is a true blue (or prime blue), not royal. However, the cat hair shows up rather well (*snort*)!
Here she be:
I'd like to construct a complementary bonnet or turban - I'm leaning toward the turban. Hopefully, Spring will decide to arrive in the great State of Ohio so I can get out and have some photos taken of me in all this Regency finery!
Can you believe it's nearly April? Blessings and happy sewing!
