This is my second gown from the Elegant Lady’s Closet. I bought a wonderful Indian Ikat weave fabric from Ebay and it suited the style perfectly. Next time I may make the sleeves a little wider and longer, but it turned out so much nicer than my first dress which was a round neck. I think the V neckline is more flattering to well-endowed ladies. I am also wearing my very comfortable Regency stays underneath, but I can’t show you that! The hardest part is simply finding the right sort of fabric for these dresses.
My apologies that I am not wearing my bonnet at this point. The event is the annual Picnic at Pemberly hosted by the Abbey Museum of Art & Archeology in Caboolture, Queensland, Australia.
Isn’t this fabric absolutely perfect for this time period? I love the print and the border. Great fit, too, Lea-anne!
