Two little regency outfits.



I've enhanced the two outfits I made whilst working on my Regency pattern for Patience, and I'm delighted with how they've turned out. Both are now up for grabs in my Etsy store.

White dress:

Bonnet dress: 

The white dress with short puff sleeves has had lots of pretty accessories added, and Patience looks like she's going to her first ball.

 


The Alice band with its big bow is so cute. And I've added detachable waist trim - because the trim sits just underneath the bodice, which means I would have to sew ribbon to the gathers
of the skirt, which doesn't always look neat.  So this is my solution.



It was kind of hard to part with these two ensembles.




And with the cream dress, I enhanced the bonnet with lots of pretty trim, including a generous measure of pure cotton lace around the brim.




So much fun.  :)








So now that's done, and I must stop procrastinating over this new project for Evangeline.  She's so BIG.  I'm using up a lot of cotton lawn on this gal.
