This is a dress I made for a regency play. Well, actually I’ve made four dresses from this pattern.
I’ve adapted the lenght, so it’s a floorlenght and I’ve modified the bustpart, this means I’ve got rid of the darts and just gathered that part. This made the dress more historic. Only the bodice part is lined, so that the fabric wouldn’t show through.
One dress took me about 6 hours to maken.
cotton, linen for lining, buttons
