The Challenge:  Stashbusting

Fabric: (polyester) brocade & linen/cotton blend

Stashed for how long? 3 years for the brocade, a 6 years for the linen/cotton, and 9 or 10 years for the buttons.

Pattern: Laughing Moon #125, View A

Year: 1800-1815, approximately

Notions: fusible interfacing, buttons, thread

How historically accurate is it?  Shape and style are pretty dead-on, materials are utterly modern.

Hours to complete: 8-10, it was all running together that week.

First worn: March 21st, at the symphony with other folks dressed in Regency attire.

Total cost: About $10 total ($7 for brocade remnants, $1 for the linen/cotton blend, $1 in bulk buttons, and $1 in thread and interfacing.)
