A little bit of early 19th century sewing

I have everything done except for the buttons/buttonholes and the hem of this period correct Regency dress. I have been oh-so-tempted to keep it, but I really don't need another one.

Navy linen yet to be cut out and sewn into a Regency Robe. The color looks really weird, and the buttons look strangley dusty, but they aren't, honestly! =)


I had hoped to have both listed on ebay in a day or two, but now that I have parted with some of my Edwardian clothes for a ladies tea, I'm going to have to sew a dress for me to wear! Either that or not go.

I really like the pattern for the dress you are planning on making!! :) I've seen it before...but always was hard to fork over that money for a pattern, when I get them at JoAnn's for $1! Maybe one day...it's so versatile and you can have so many variations to it!

Very pretty! I really like the fabric you made the dress from. I LOVE the tea gown pattern! I can't wait to see what you make from it. :) (Do you ever have any FAILED sewing projects? lol everything you make is so perfect!)

Ruth Ann,

I like to pick up patterns at Joann's too when they are for $1, so with the S&S patterns, I usually put them up on my birthday or Christmas "wishlist." =)

Yayaorchid,

Thankyou! I bought it from www.fabric.com although I think they sold out of it.

Christy,

How sweet of you! Thankyou!

Sarah,

I had to laugh at your comment. YES, I do have many failed sewing attempts ... I just don't blog about them. =D

Emily,

Thankyou! I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it!
