Regency Silk Dress

Finally, pictures of the recently completed Regency Silk Dress. I'm very happy with the way it turned out.

I'm thrilled with the lines of the back. The train seems to be the perfect length - awesome, since I had to cut very carefully to get all of the pieces out of the silk lining.

I didn't have quite enough fabric to line the sleeves as planned, but I really like how they turned out. I ended up using some plain sheer silk organza from my stash to line the sleeves.

A pearl button secures the bib-front.

  1. Sooo...when do we get to see pictures of it on *you*? ;)

  2. Definitely before the end of February, which is when my portfolio will need to be finished. Hopefully we'll be doing a little photo shoot sometime soon!

  3. Just gorgeous!!! I love the dress and the robe. I have a love for the late 1790's styles. You must post pictures of you in the dress :-)
