Our son just got married, and the bridesmaids dresses were from your 1914 Afternoon Dress pattern. Thanks! Marci B. I am a real sucker for blue and white. My own wedding was blue and white, and I adore hydrangeas! Note the embroidery on the bodices, too. The dresses are sheer over white petticoats (also made […]

Virginia's Bodiced Petticoat

By Jennie Chancey

I made this out of a beautiful fine weave cotton lawn and actually lined the skirt because I am going to be making a pretty gauzy dress over it, encouraged by your suggestion/mention of this common fashion of the period, which I have always loved when done in period films. I also have plans for […]

I thought you might like to see a few pictures of my finished dress. I did all the outside stitching by hand and the rest by machine. Though I’d thought about adding trim, I was running out of time and decided on the gold sash and gold wired hair ribbon, along with a pearl necklace, […]
