Cosmo, you are so ambitious! I wish I was more like you! I'm going to be like Val and list all projects:
1. Regency Ball gown for Ms.Hazeltines Drum and an outfit for hubby! 2.Renaissance outfits for myself and the girls, hubby already has his (I do renaissance as well because hubby loves it so much...and I'll admit I like it myself ) 3. Day dresses and pinafores for the girls
Then of course I have a few friends having babies this year so I have some major sewing to do there, but nothing set yet. My little ones keep me so busy! There are just not enough hours in the day.

Don't be like me. I am insane. am super obsessive and I dream about regency costumes day and night. I want to talk about them all day everyday. I will never get everything on my list done because my daughter is little and needs attention. I am a regency costume-aholic and there isn't 12 step program that can rehabilitate me. I am overly ambitious.
"It is something for a woman to be assured that in her eight-and-twentieth year, that she has not lost one charm of earlier youth." Anne, Persuasion. I totally agree, I only hope it feels the same at nine-and-twenty.
Well, Here is my list, hope to earn enough $$$ to have these done and in my closet by the end of the year: For the 1800 - 1830 period: 1.- kid fur gloves 2.- blue redingote (silk lined and velvet aplications) 3.- Silk/ wool stockinette pantaloons and breeches 4.- White silk stockings (actually i only have them in silk natural colour, still looking for a local provider of white silk thread). 5.- black felt top hat of 25 cms tall (already working on that)... i would love to make it with beaver fur but dont have that on the local market...
For the 1789 -1795 period: 6.- complete habit a la francaise in silk tafetta 7.- english style full atire 8.- natural hair grey powdered wig 9.- stripped silk stokings
