I recently made a 1914 tea gown using your pattern. I made this to attend a “Picnic at Hanging Rock” event and people wore 1900s costumes to attend. I also used your pattern to make an Edwardian apron to wear to protect the tea gown while helping out the BBQ. I also include pictures of […]

Valarie's 1914 Afternoon Dress

By Jennie Chancey

Jennie, I spoke to you on the phone about my Edwardian white lingerie dress that I’d made from an embroidered fine batiste shower curtain. I used your 1914 Afternoon Dress pattern.

Our son just got married, and the bridesmaids dresses were from your 1914 Afternoon Dress pattern. Thanks! Marci B. I am a real sucker for blue and white.
