Sisters’ Regency Dresses



  My sister and I just finished our first Regency dresses this week, and thought we’d share. Mine (the red one) was made using Jennie Chancey’s original pattern. The only change I made was to gather all the way across the front of the bodice, for a ‘fan’ effect. I also made some piping to […] Read more…

Thanks again for the wonderful service and […] Read more…
