I have recently had a bit of a sewing block over the Mantua Maker Stays and have been needing some inspiration and encouragement to actually get them started. The very thought of diving into that project has rendered me completely useless. I've found myself trolling other people blogs going green with envy at the sight of their superb gowns. But with these dresses I'm hoping to offer myself an imaginary carrot at the end of a stick to help me get the stays finished.

This is the portrait of the Vicomtesse de Vaudreuil it was painted by Elizabeth Vigée-Lebrun, she also painted several well known portraits of Marie Antoinette.
Hopefully I can get out of my funk and actually get some work done after this.
