I've finally joined the bandwagon and made a Regency dress and spencer!  Here I am wearing it at a Pumpkin themed tea event.  The dress is mostly the Sense and Sensibility pattern with some alterations recommended by Katherine and others.  The spencer is Period Impressions (though I had to make up my own sleeve as I had a ton of trouble with their sleeve shape.)

I was inspired by spencers made by fellow costumers like Lauren and Stephanie as well as this fashion plate

So here I am!

I had a truly wonderful time and can't wait to make more spencers and open robes to wear with my dress!
