First I want to thank you for having made such a great pattern! I love to work with it, it is so versatile and it fits so well. Here I have changed the Regency Gown into a bib-front gown and added a shirred bib. The ruffle around the hem is shirred with cording.
This is a stunning use of my pattern. I just sat here and drooled for a while as the photos downloaded. I’ve got an online tutorial for making a bib-front version of the Regency Gown, but Cecilia took it up another notch by shirring the front panel. WOW! Simply gorgeous, and thanks for sharing your work, Cecilia!
