You may not be able to buy a paisley or silk stole, but with a luscious sport-weight alpaca yarn and this PDF pattern, you can make yourself a good substitute! The “Fleur-de-Lis Stole” is luxury itself, with a generous length for the classical Regency drape, and the combination of fleur-de-lis (a popular motif of the time) and a striking edging of fans and tassels.
My good friend, Casey, over at Elegant Musings is hosting a “Sew-Along” this month and into February. Lots of ladies get together to sew from one pattern and share the results. Casey took a poll, and my 1940s “Swing” Dress Pattern won! I was very honored and am excited to see the beautiful results that are sure to follow. If you’d like to join in, jump on over to Casey’s gorgeous blog for the sewing schedule!

After seeing Mama’s Regency dresses, our little girls wanted one of their own. Our girls are not twins but they do love to dress alike, so we selected the matching seersucker fabric with contrasting colors. The completed dresses brought much delight! Christina K Adorable! I really love the contrasting fabric sashes. Thanks so much for […]
I discovered the existence of a Jane Austen Festival in Canberra, Australia, in 2008. After attending the first festival and having a ball–but having to borrow dresses–I decided to give it a crack, despite no sewing experience further than year 8 cushions and bags. I’ve since attended two more festivals and been a useful resource […]
