I've been a bag blogger, I know! It's just that, well you know how it goes - brain fried with all kinds of in-progress projects, future projects, crazy stuff happening.
My "big" project this year is Mr. C's Regency duds, for Maggie and Albert's Regency wedding, in October. I'll be making him a shirt, breeches, waistcoat, and tail coat. Some of those items frighten me considerably more than others, but I'm armed with my new book The Victorian Tailor: An Introduction to Period Tailoring, patterns from Kanniks Corner for the waistcoat and shirt , the surprisingly period Simplicity breeches pattern , and the tailcoat pattern from Country Wives.
I arrived at these pattern choices after much researching, hunting for reviews, looking at anything I could find on men's Regency clothing. Compared to women's attire, there isn't much to go on! However, here are some inspiration images I did find...
