Heather made this beautiful Regency Gown and writes, Here are the explanations for the pictures of me in my gown. For the back view: Here is full view of the back of the gown.

Melissa (in white) made her beautiful gown while taking my Regency Gown Class, then made one for her sister! Didn’t she do a fantastic job with that eyelet overlay and split front skirt? It makes it look like a dress with a pelisse over top. Very creative!
