Butterick pattern B6630 view B
For years, my friends and I wanted to make Regency-style dresses, but we didn’t have a reason… so when it came time for my bridal shower, I decided to MAKE a reason. We had a lovely tea party and three of the girls (including me) made dresses for the occasion. My favorite potential fabric just happened to be white, and I figured that was okay because, well, I was the bride-to-be! I made the dress in two and a half days. I altered the neckline of the pattern a little and added the lace insert. I also altered how the lower skirt trim was attached, because the selvage of the main skirt fabric actually was just fine as a segue into the lace trim. Overall the whole thing was a lot easier than I thought it was going to be (especially the puffy sleeves).
Embroidered cotton fabric; wide eyelet lace trim for the skirt hem; back is laced with cord/hooks from hook & eye set.
