Ashley's Romantic Dresses

By Jennie Chancey

Last summer Gabrielle and I sewed ourselves some Wives & Daughters dresses. My sister, Gabrielle, made a dress that reminded us of Molly, while I sewed myself a dress that reminds you of Cynthia. Aren’t these lovely? The costumes from the A&E adaptation of “Wives and Daughters” are what inspired me to start researching and […]

Hello Mrs. Chancey, I made this dress to wear for the 400th anniversary celebration in Jamestown. It had such a feminine, graceful feel as well as adding to the remembrance of a past era! It is very comfortable for walking, yet feels very tailored since the gathers are all in the back. I totally love […]
