Sarah’s Regency Ball Ensemble


Sleeveless Spencer

I got my sister and myself tickets to an upcoming Regency ball. And I hadn’t a clue what I was going to wear.

Regency Wedding


Regency Spencer jacket

I was to attend a wedding with Regency period as a theme. It was wonderful with dances and all and finally I took the time to make a dress and a jacket for the period. This will come in handy as I also attend roleplaying games from time to time and Regency dance. Read more…

Tracy’s Darling Edwardian Apron


Girl's Edwardian Apron

My youngest was wanting a new apron for Christmas. She helps me bake for the farmers market in the summer. This pattern was perfect!

I bound the edges on the outside of the skirt for extra detail (this was a yellow/gold print from my stash). Can’t wait for her to open it on Christmas. Read more…

All I can say is “WOW!” The process of printing, piecing & cutting this pattern was so incredibly easy. The dress came together like a dream. Read more…
