Regency Dress

In November I made Elissa another Regency Dress using the Sensibility Pattern. I used the Elegant Ladies Closet elbow length sleeves and I raised the neckline a bit. I really enjoyed sewing this dress, but I did have a lot of problems with getting the sleeves right. I ended up having to call a very talented young seamstress and she helped me! ;o) Elissa loves it and it looks quite beautiful on her! ;o)

Very, very nice! I am interested in trying this pattern. My two older girls are requesting new Regency dresses. I think maybe we will purchase this pattern to make new dresses.
