Hello, Mrs. Chancey. I wanted to let you know how much I’ve enjoyed using your patterns, especially the Regency ones.

Valarie's 1914 Afternoon Dress

Jennie, I spoke to you on the phone about my Edwardian white lingerie dress that I’d made from an embroidered fine batiste shower curtain. I used your 1914 Afternoon Dress pattern.
