Regency Dress for Debi
My last two weeks have been busy with sewing. My 8th grader was dreaming of a regency dress for a long time - she is a big Jane Austen fan. I had the Simplicity 4055 pattern for a while, but somehow never got to it. Her 8th grade school celebration was a great opportunity. The fabric proved to be quite a challenge, as it stretched out in places as I worked with it, but in the end I managed to finish the dress - complete with hand-made buttonholes and covered buttons. I also managed to braid her long strong hair into a beautiful up-do. She truly looked like a princess.
