Bits of Time and Lace


I've been able to sneak in a few moments to sit down at my sewing table to finish this 1830's inspired summer dress. Made out of a crisp pink and purple plaid shirting, and is adorned with a bit of antique lace at the sleeves. Find more pictures here.

It's nice to see a historical dress from you! Your creation is lovely, as always. :-)

Cheri said...

Thankyou, ladies. =)

Yes, Laura, unfortunately I haven't done a whole lot of historical sewing these days partly/mainly because of the time they take. I do have a gorgeous lightweight cotton that will be *perfect* for a Regency gown, so I'm anxious to start cutting into it!

It's gorgeous.

This is soo beautiful, what pattern did you use? Now I feel the need to go sew some historical clothing...

Lauren, I used a Sense & Sensibility pattern. There is a little pink square box on my side bar that will take you to the website where you can buy regular patterns, or buy e-patterns and print them out at home yourself.

Beautiful Cheri! I see it sold already!!

I have to tell you that your retro apron is TOTALLY my sister! As soon as I showed it to her she gasped and said "THAT IS SO COOL!!!!". LOL And to top it, it has her favorite name...Margaret. :D
