    Hi KK, I’ve got a Regency era dinner to attend in October, and have seen your awesome “Pride and Prejudice” dresses via Pinterest. I wonder if you could send me details of how you altered the Danielle pattern so I could have a bash? I would really appreciate it if you could help me out. I am a beginner with some experience, but have quite a few people I can call on for help!

    Thanks in advance, Jules Hesketh

    I love the gathering on the back of both dresses, and the colour of the lighter blue dress too. The pattern for this dress might be my first project!

    Hello, I love the dress! Can you tell me how you altered it to look like this? I’m wanting to make a Regency dress for Halloween and really love what you did here.

      Sure I’ll tell you best I can how I did it!
      can you send me your email address to me in a message? I have a couple of pictures that would be easier to explain it with.
      I probably cant get back to you until monday, because I’ll be gone for the weekend.
