Preparations for the Jane Austen Festival 2013

With less than three weeks to go until the festival, I'm now trimming reticules and putting the finishing touches to a few bonnets. For this festival, I've made 10 new dresses, (3 of which are evening dresses), 1 new Spencer and 2 Pelisses. I've thoroughly enjoyed sewing and to be honest, if I saw some new fabric now, I'd try to squeeze in the making of yet another dress. I think it is a bit addictive, this dress making malarky. When I see fabric, I see another gown or a new spencer.
