This past week I've been having so much fun dreaming up new dresses! Taking advantage of some spring sales from my favorite fabric suppliers, I now have a whole stock of sheer printed lawns and voiles, that are going to quickly transform into ready-made Regency dresses for the shop! In the past couple of weeks I've made three dresses and two matching silk weskits - which are your favorites?
First up, a Grecian-inspired green and yellow floral lawn dress...
I *love* this fabric. Seriously. I think it is my absolute favorite of all the fabrics I have ever worked with. So perfectly sheer that it floats on air - and I love the bright, sprawled floral pattern.
Rather 18th century, don't you think?
If you didn't hear the news, I've started a Facebook page for my Historical Clothing, to keep everyone updated on new and upcoming items, and to get feedback and ideas on what is in demand. I would love to have your opinions and ideas for new ready-made dresses. Even if you aren't in the market for a dress, do you have any particular inspirations (movie, fashion plate, painting, etc.) that you would like to see turned into a Regency dress or accessory? Please let me know!
