Regency Progress...

For my next Regency project I decided to try out the crossover gown from the Sense and Sensibility pattern, The Elegant Lady's Closet. I got all the pattern pieces traced yesterday so I will start cutting fabric soon! I haven't tried this pattern yet so I'm excited to see how it turns out. :) Have any of you made up this pattern before?
I'm also thinking about making the drawstring gown at some point. I'm not sure if I have the right fabric for that one or not...we'll see. :)
Anyway...I'll keep you posted as I progress. It feels good to be working on a historic project...I haven't done one in awhile!


  1. My mother made the drawstring. We are currently trying to get mine done!

  2. I can't wait to see pictures of it when it's done!



Although I continually talk about movie costumes on this blog, I am not a movie reviewer. Not all the films I discuss are recommended and I do not choose to review weather they are appropriate or not for the simple fact that every person's standards are different. Something that is fine for me may be offensive to some one else and visa versa. If you would like to look into the appropriateness of a title, I recommend I have not seen all the movies I discuss, and am simply interested in the art of clothes in film. I will leave you to decide for yourself if you will watch the movie or not.
