Recent Projects

Even in the midst of Jane Austen sewing craziness, I've squeezed in a few custom orders.


The first, which was actually also a Jane Austen request, was a simple but lovely blue linen Regency dress.  


Destined to swirl at an English Country Dance, I was told!




I've been getting quite a lot of requests for 18th century style children's costumes lately, which are of course a lot of fun!
 

These were for 2 sisters having a themed birthday party! Their mother designed the gowns herself, and sent me a sketch from which to pattern the dresses.

 
Sis didn't want to give up the pink one!




  


This dress, was in the style of the blue taffeta 'Felicity' dress, which can be seen in the shop, but in a historical reproduction cotton print. Accented with vintage cream lace.

I love that regency dress!! It's beautiful! :)

The girls dresses were adorable. I am once again amazed at how you can just make those with no 'pattern'.. just a sketch! You are truly amazing! :)

Hoping you don't exhaust yourself getting the Jane Austen things done! :)
