When I found out that the drama department in the school where I teach was doing The Music Man as their production for the year, I knew I had to get involved!

I took out about 4 inches from center of the sleeve pattern. The fabric is fairly stiff so it would have been too much ‘poof.’ I love how it has that natural train in the back. I also really loved making this dress because I did not have to alter the length at all! She […] Read more…

Well, here it is. My first Regency dress! I made a few changes to the pattern to make it more modern and my style, raising the neck line a little, and shortening the skirt. I also had to make all the Miss Petite changes to the bodice. I bought the fabric early in the spring […] Read more…

I absolutely love your site! I bought the Regency era pattern to make my bridesmaid dresses, and loved it so much that I did my wedding dress out of that pattern, too. We bought the Elegant Lady’s Closet pattern as well to get the 3/4 length sleeves. We just used the Regency gown pattern as […] Read more…
