This past weekend my sister and I attended (and helped call) an English Country Dance ball, one of *several* we've been to. Yet this one was special. Why? It was completely Regency themed.
Everyone looked so lovely and elegant -
- there were some perfectly gorgeous dresses!
I have a Regency dress already but compared to the others it was definitely lacking something. Glamor, maybe? I envisioned a
flow-y skirt swishing about my ankles, a quaint bow...
...mine was just blah.
And soooo I've decided to try my hand at sewing a new one.
I am no seamstress, in fact, I'm not the biggest fan of sewing.
My mom however has been learning for quite a few years now,
so it shouldn't be too hard to catch on.
I found some absolutely luxurious lavender-ish-silver-ish satin fabric.
Ahhhh...the dress of my dreams?
I hope so.
I plan on making the dress in the right side of the pattern picture, but rather than making the long sleeves, add the cute little puffs from the other dress.
What do you think??
