madamemodiste: (Regency)
So last night, quite by accident, I discovered that a local PBS channel has been running Regency House Party on Thursday nights! I missed last week, but I saw most of last night's. I haven't seen it in quite a while as I have no idea where my VHS copy is that I recorded when it originally aired several years ago. Now I'm on a Regency kick and want to make a new gown, but I can't!

In other news, the pocket I attempted to make last week was a failure, so I had to re-cut a new jacket peplum. Yesterday I made the pocket flaps with contrasting piping. If I can't have a pocket, I can still have pocket flaps!

I put the BBC series The House of Elliot on my queue, and I watched my first installment last night. WOW!! I'm really in love with this series! As it's about two sisters who start a fashion house in the 1920's, I thought it was an appropriate topic for my sewing journal.

Has anyone else seen it and want to share how fun this series is?
