No robe battante for me tomorrow. I could pull it off, but I'm tired and quite sore today and I prefer to rest. I may not be as smart as I would wish tomorrow, but I prefer to be rested and have fun instead. I have my blue casaque for day time and I think I'll bring my velvet wrapping gown for the evening. Not as nice as with stays, but workable. And I have a new pretty cap made by madameberg!
It feels a bit meh to have an almost-finished gown that I probably won't finish now, because I'm all set to have a striped taffeta battante and not a solig satin one, but I will have to see it as an useful experience. I know I have a pattern that works, and the small things that could have been better, will be better next time.
Now I just have to locate my pocket hoops and my wide-sleeved chemise. Of course, I know prefectly well where my narrow-sleeved chemise are. Oh how annoying it is to moce house and not know where stuff are.
Hmm, a new thought. Perhaps I could use my chemise a la reine without stays...
