Heather’s Regency “Test” Dress

By Jennie Chancey

My oldest daughter is getting married in January. I made test dresses to check pattern sizing and for fun. These are the test dresses. Same fabric, different sizes. The pattern used is Simplicity’s Sense and Sensibility pattern. I hope to post pictures of the Bride’s and Bridesmaid dresses after the wedding.

This is a beautiful day dress, and the setting is so evocative. I especially love the black and white inside the log cabin. Don’t you just feel transported back in time? Lovely! Can’t wait to see the wedding pictures!

Share the love!

    That log cabin photo definitely looks like it was taken in the 1800′s sometime. I love the fabric you used! Great job!

    The log cabin is a favorite place of ours. It is on the grounds of our local Farm Museum where we volunteer in period costume in the spinning room as 1860s spinners. We have held many meetings there for our local fiber arts group and we all love the ambiance. We tend to do better making everyday sort of dresses instead of fancy. I was rather on autopilot in making the wedding dress. Looking back, I can’t believe I did that.
