Finally...Pictures of our finished Regency dresses!!!

Posted by Gabrielle

Back in October I finished our girls' first regency dresses in three weeks, just in time for our family Christmas portrait!

I used Mrs. Chancey's Regency dress pattern, and loved it!!! It was a great learning experience, and a lot of fun to make! The biggest modification I made was drafting the overskirt pattern from some other similar dresses I've seen.
Yours truly!
Arianne!
Christianna!
All three of us! This one's going to be printed and framed for our room! ;)

~Thank you for taking the gorgeous pictures, Erica!~

Such beautiful dresses, on such beautiful young ladies! I popped over here from the S&S message board~you have such a lovely family.

I have four daughters, the oldest being 12. I can't wait for them to be sewing up their own dresses, too!

Love,

Marqueta
