My First Regency Dress

After many attempts to make my own regency dress (using an old sheet!!), I finally decided to take the plunge and buy one - such a good decision. I ordered this one from the Jane Austen Centre in Bath last year. It was made by their fabulous dressmaker. Sadly its not the best photo so you can't really see it in detail but it is beautifully made. Oh I wish I had such sewing skills *sigh*

  1. I tried making my first dress out of a sheet.....when I finished it looked like a crumpled sheet. And it didn't fit...and the sewing machine tried to eat me.
