After loaning out some of my Edwardian clothing to a friend who was going to a tea, I needed something to wear. And so, I completed the dress yesterday night at promptly 12am! I still have the sashes to finish, but since time was running out, I just tied the darker pink in a knot. […]

Hello Jennie – I have just finished a dress for my daughter from your Girls’ Regency Dress pattern. It turned out so beautifully. My daughter is five and I let her pick out the fabric. At first I thought the heirloom cotton was too plain, but as I put the puffed sleeves in and saw […]
