I just wanted to thank you for your wonderful patterns. My daughter & I have been enjoying them so much! The past few weeks, I have been working on sewing my gown for the Marine Corps Ball that my beloved & I were to attend. I chose the Regency Gown pattern with modifications. I used the Regency sleeve and skirt with a square neck bodice. I widened the bodice for gathering, gathered it, & attached it to a waistband then added a ribbon and a rose. In addition to the gown, I opted to make a long Regency jacket [pelisse]. This was my first time making this & it was quite a challenge (since I didn’t have time to practice on it). I was glad that it turned out as well as it did (& that I had gotten extra material for mess ups).
Thank you so much!

Isn’t this fun? The ballgown perfectly complements the dashing Marine uniform, down to the red sash to match his red stripes. Simply beautiful! And I love the long pelisse. Fantastic work, Christine!
