Right now, I am wanting to make a Regency half-robe (anybody know the real term?) that was worn over a dress when outside. It looks something like this:
I would like to make one as close to looking like the peach one, one as much as I can. What I will wear it for, I have no idea. But for some reason, I feel like dressing up "Regency style." =) I love so many of the gowns that Marianne wears on the 1995 version of Sense & Sensibility... ::sighs:: I have seen the new S&S, and though I like it alot, I still prefer the older one.
Anyway, thanks to an obliging sweet lady from the sewing board, I've been given directions on how to make one of these! She made one for herself after one like what Jane wears on the 2005 P&P. You can see Anna's lovely duplicate here.
...Oh, and I wanted to add... If anyone is interested, someone is selling a silk Regency gown that I made. It appears that the lady bought it for just a "one-time" event. Can you imagine?! Anyway, if you're curious, the link is here.
