New Regency Ball Gown or Wedding Dress

Announcing a new white sheer regency dress! This one is from a newly drafted bodice pattern. Currently for sale in my Etsy shop.


Made from an under layer of cotton muslin and and over layer of sheer cotton voile.


Skirt has a slight train in the back.


Fastens with two drawstrings, one at the neck and one at the waist.


White dresses are perfect to be accesorised with any color of trimming!

*Gasp* What a beautiful gown! I love the utter simplicity of it. Sigh, pure loveliness.

I have been contemplating making a new Regency gown but I just don't have time, it makes me very sad!

thankee!

Sarah - Yes, the hair style was totally made up. It was one of those 'magic' one time in a thousand when I stuck a few pins in here and there and it actually stayed! woohoo! At least long enough for pictures. :^)

As far as I can remember, I started with about 1/3 of my hair in a side part at the front, the rest towards the back in a center part. I loosely twisted each side front back around to the back in half-up style and secured each twist with a clip. then I flipped up the long hair in the back, tucked the ends under and stuck a few pins in. Lol. Not very scientific, and I doubt I could do it again. But - I'm thankful it worked for the pictures! It was very windy.

You are so beautiful dear friend!!! Those pictures in the field are breath taking...
And the dress is lovely. The buyer is going to be some lucky person. I wish I has all the time in the world to sew up a storm like you do!

Miss you my friend. Your email news made me sad. I'll reply soon.
