|Ye spencer bodice. All seams and hems are stitched|
in constrasting yellow silk (Au Ver de Soie 100/3)
Anyhow, here's another view, below. Being at my mother's house, quarantined from my son-with-a-cold so that I'd not get sick and affect tomorrow's abdominal surgery, I've only had the smartphone camera, and her borrowed computer. Therefore, no detailed progress pictures, I'm afraid. All I can tell you is that all seams are lapped and all hems are point a rabbatre sous le main.
What's left? A final bodice seam, and two hems, then attaching the straps, adding the front closure, and the neckline ruche.
It will be several weeks before I get to that. Segue to a hiatus I'm taking from the blog: there'll be no posts until recovery is well underway or over with. No need to work with a needle while the hands are shaky or the head woozy :} Last time I tried that after a surgery I produced one of the worst efforts in redwork embroidery ever. Huge wonky lopsided stitches. It's a nice memento but I don't need any mementos on this spencer, thank you.
Very best to all, and see you in a few weeks! Meantime, I'll try to keep up with everyone's blogs as I can.
