After correcting the Oops! in the sleeve pattern, I've got them basted in.  The pattern correction says to distribute the fullness between the "shoulder" seam and side seam.  It looks better,  but still looks a little weird.  I think I'll spread the gathers up to the shoulder, and see how that looks.  I'm rapidly loosing all patience with this thing.  And, seeing as how there is no way it'll be done by Valentines day, I'm giving up for the night.  Yes, I know it's only quarter to nine, but I gotta Know when to quit.

I'm still feeling crappy, and tired to boot.  It's ridiculously hard to sleep when there is something tickling your throat all night.  But I'm sick to death of watching the election coverage and blogging doesn't take much energy.  So here I am.
In sewing news, not much to report.  I was able to muster up the energy to turn my skirt drape for the Archery gown into a paper pattern.  Tonight I will cut and sew, so should have progress pics tomorrow.  The project is due on the 22nd, so I have to work on it a little each day!  I think the most time consuming thing will be the trim, isn't always.  I now have all the materials and supplies I need, so once it's all fitted and approved, I can start cutting.  I should probably work on getting the trim made so when it comes time to putting it on, I'll be ready.  I should be able to start that on Wednesday.
This morning, I took Marshmallow, the ironic black bunny to the vet.  He has been sneezing quite a bit and we wanted to be sure he is ok.  He has a slight sinus infection, so now I have to give him antibiotics twice a day for 14 days.  This should be an adventure!  Thank goodness, we have a good vet.  He told me he could swab his nose and run tests to see exactly what was causing the infection, but they are very expensive and really not worth it, so why bother?  Now we just need to watch him to make sure the sneezing starts to get less frequent, and be sure he doesn't develop any new symptoms.

I'm still here.  D decided he wanted to go to the fabric store with me.  Twice in one month!  It's a record!
anywho, it has given me time to get upload some pics of the Modern Regency.
What I learned:
This pattern goes together very easily, even at 11:00pm when your frustrated beyond belief! 
When making this as a strictly historic garment, I would make it up a size smaller.  But for wearing over modern undergarments, this works out nicely.
I may change the look of the armseye in back when making for modern wear.

All in all, I'm pretty happy with the results so far.  I can't wait to get it finished, so I can wear it!

 So, I got bored with the fiddley bits of the Venetian and have decided to start on a pair of Regency short stays.  I'll be using the Simplicity version of the Sense and Sensibility pattern.  
Now, off to work.
