New Regency Dresses and Weskits

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...

One of my favorite bodice styles for Regency dresses!
Size 6.

A gold and bronze silk weskit coordinates nicely!

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?

Finally, a white and gold striped lawn ball gown, which also could be paired with the gold weskit!
A petite size 4-6.

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!

That blue floral fabric is gorgeous. As I scrolled down it just caught my eyes, even if I'm not that big fan of blue. Although all three dresses are nice, I think you feel so much more free with working more on your own designs. :o)

My favorite is the green-ish one, but they are all beautiful!

I know I'm a little late, but, congratulations on your engagement! I'm happy for you! (and him) :)

Very pretty! I bet the blue Weskit would look lovely on that white gown as well! :) I so wish I could order them!!! ;)
