Pink Tea

I found the fabric for the Pink Tea so underwhelming that I almost didn't do anything or even plan on going. Then Beth talked me into it by mentioning I should just do something really easy, like a Regency spencer or something. I immediately thought of the Curtain-Along spencerino that I love, and remembered how truly quickly that pattern goes together. Yeah, it's fast. Ten hours later, including some hand stitching which added like three hours to it, the Pepto Bismol spencerino is done.

Ta da! Laying out the pattern:

Back detail, hand stitching in progress, since I needed something to do while the kids were in karate:

Finished spencerino:

Surprisingly, I actually kind of like the spencerino now. I don't know how often I'll wear it, but it's done. It'll make a good loaner piece if the friend is even remotely shaped like me, too. Also, I think we'll all look neat together at the Tea, so there's that.

I also made a hair piece. It looks ok, but next time I need to make sure that the synthetic hair does well with heat. This one looks a bit frizzy. It'll do for Saturday, though.
