Carol’s Regency and Romantic Dresses

By Jennie Chancey


I just wanted to show you the latest dress I finished for Olivia using the Regency pattern. I made it early in the spring for another project, but didn’t get around to finishing it because the girl I wanted to send it to, was no longer living there! So I saved it for Olivia and it now fits her. I used the Regency dress pattern and drafted out the side back piece (easy) then moved the shoulder seam to the shoulder, again (easy) and finally I scooped the neckline where I wanted it so the jumper can be worn either with the buttons in the front, or the back. That way, little girl’s who want to dress themselves and want button up the front can do so! Olivia loves her new dress, can you tell? One of these days I will get all my pictures together with finishing touches, and then hopefully write up a little article for the wardrobe with this pattern…along with the pantaloon pattern. ~ Carol K.

Carol also made the beautiful Romantic dress you see below Olivia’s jumper. Carol is a prolific seamstress and shares her lovely creations many times each year!
