Pockets finished - finally!

I finished a pair of pockets made from the embroidered fabric mentioned here a few minutes ago.


It's not quite the same as if the embroidery had been designed for the pockets but nevertheless, I think they're very cute if I may say so myself.


The tape is made from scraps from the same fabric I used for my pink-stripe polonaise. Hand-sewn. It only took a few "Monkees" episodes and the first 3½ parts of "Aristocrats". I have a very varied taste.

To think that it has taken me so long to get y first pockets - for shame!

Now, back to the regency gown.

  2. Aww - they are very pretty! The embroidered fabric does look like it could have been made for them - great positioning on your part!

  3. Thank you, both! And the best part is, that I still have a piece of the fabric that would be perfect for a stomacher for a garment that not yet exists even in my mind...

  4. They are gorgeous! I love the colours! It's very unlikely that you are ever going to see me with a pair of hand-embroidered pockets, so I certainly don't judge you!

  5. Nice pockets, I don't think I'll ever sew any, so I'll just admire yours.

  6. Lady D: Yeah, I thought I could use those don't-know-how-many hours of work for something that's actually going to be seen. Plus I'm lazy :P
    Clara: Just wait till you find that perfect fabric remnant, that's when I got serious about it!

  7. OK, so you have probably won it a million times, but you totally deserve to win it again, so there is a little award for you on my blog :-)

  8. Very pretty :)
    Now I wish I had found a finished pretty fabric instead of embroidering my pocket myself :P

  9. Lovely. How can you be so quick. Mine took three days of larp kitchen cooking brakes, marie antoinette, three episodes of fresh prince and two episodes of lark rise to candleford.

    You might have more sew-fu than me though :)

  10. I doubt that, Marthe! I just think I'm the sloppier seamstress of the two of us...
