Regency Dress Two - Start to Finish


Here is the second dress I made to wear to my father's wedding. I didn't have time to make the bodiced petticoat that I wanted to wear with it, so I just made the little "petticoat" skirt to give the gown skirt some fullness. The large photo is me wearing the dress at my father's wedding. (The shoes ruin the look, but I had no time to find anything more "period"!) I also made a matching reticule from the La Mode Bagatelle pattern, but I wasn't holding it in this photo.

(Scroll down to see more photos of the making of the dress.)
