And it’s done! Quite an easy little item, so I took the pains to do some hand finishing- the understitching, attaching that lovely beaded trim, and finishing the sleeve linings.
It feels very Spanish, and although it isn’t in the slightest bit ‘historically accurate’ I’m chuffed with its Gothic/Victorian feel. I decided to add another button to the sleeve trim, as the beaded fringing is so OTT.
I’m not modelling it, because the bust darts are the wrong shape to wear it with a bra, and I can’t be bothered to kit up…wait and see you impatient lot!
