I thought you might be interested to see Lily’s cross-over dress she made this fall. ~ Karen This young lady looks every inch the Regency girl–to the print of the fabric and the bonnet! Wonderful outfit!
As a beginning sewer I was a little intimidated about making a dress all by myself, but was thrilled with the idea of creating something that I could wear.

It went together very easily for me, and altering it was very easy…not the least bit complicated! My alterations were lengthening the bodice and [...]
