I finished the last couple of details on the Kimono dress today and had my daughter try it on. When she did, we were delighted to see that the final touches were indeed complete. She put a necklace on, and we went outside to snap a few pictures. She’s really pleased with it, and so […]

I made this Edwardian wedding gown for my sister, using your Tea Gown pattern. I added a train using your Regency train instructions and did not add a sheer overlay. We are really happy with how it turned out! This is a wonderful pattern. Very easy to modify and make your own. I have a […]

It has been a while since I ordered the 1910s Tea Gown from you, but I’ve been steadily working on it since the spring and thought I might share the finished product with you. This dress was a great learning challenge for me in a couple respects. I dyed fabric for the first time, using […]

Caroline created her Tea Gown to wear to a wedding. She writes, Once more I’m sharing my joy with you. It’s done! It’s not perfect, but it’s done. I ended up putting rosettes on the sash in a Dior style–three roses together. Instead of a straight piece, I used a football shape and folded it […]

This is Jennifer Rouch’s version of the tea gown. Writes Jennifer, “My tea dress was a less accurate version as far as budget was concerned. Instead of using guipure lace I used a wide antique looking less expensive lace. The green matte satin was a dead on match of the movie dress, and I used […]
