Thank you so much for your wonderful patterns and website; my sisters and I have really enjoyed them 🙂 I made this dress out of a yellow striped seersucker fabric. I really enjoyed working with this pattern. The instructions where very well written, and I found it even easier to make than the regency gown! I did not have to make any fitting changes. I did turn the bodice on the bias and added a keyhole to the sleeve. I also added fullness to the skirt back, which has a lovely train. 🙂 I am looking forward to using this pattern again.
I absolutely love this wonderful crossover gown! Cutting a crossover bodice on the bias when you have stripes is a fabulous way to use stripes to great effect. Victoria did a lovely job, and those keyhole sleeves are darling! I featured Victoria’s work in my e-newsletter’s “My Pattern Story” section, which won her a $15 gift certificate! Have beautiful pictures and a great story to share about using one of my patterns? Contact me through my Feedback Form for your chance to win!
