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!

Virginia's Bodiced Petticoat

By Jennie Chancey

I made this out of a beautiful fine weave cotton lawn and actually lined the skirt because I am going to be making a pretty gauzy dress over it, encouraged by your suggestion/mention of this common fashion of the period, which I have always loved when done in period films. I also have plans for […]

I thought you might like to see a few pictures of my finished dress. I did all the outside stitching by hand and the rest by machine. Though I’d thought about adding trim, I was running out of time and decided on the gold sash and gold wired hair ribbon, along with a pearl necklace, […]
