I really love the contrasting fabric sashes. Thanks so much for […] Read more…

Little Girl’s Regency Ensemble


I recently ordered a gown from .  The young lady made me a beautiful blue satin dress with sash from one of your patterns along with a matching hairbow.  I was so excited to get it that we ordered the pattern from you.  I am a beginning seamstress, but I was able to make the pinafore/pantaloon […] Read more…
