3/22/10: Planning and Scheming — My Regency Gown from Sense and Sensibility Patterns


This will be one post of many to come that will discuss the new projects I have lined up for Spring. I recently made an order to (since they had a 50% off sale on most of their fabrics!!), and so I am now able to start working on some garments I’ve been daydreaming about.

First up is this beautiful gauze fabric in a jacquard flower print. It is 100% rayon and lovely to feel! I am going to be using this for a Regency-style dress, complete with empire waist. I bought the pattern from last summer when they had a very good sale. You can learn more about the pattern by clicking here.

And I am going to use this silky acetate, beige fabric for the lining.

I bought the Regency Gown Neckline Supplement that includes different neckline variations. I am still not sure which one to choose but I know it will be the higher choices. I’m not going for a true, Regency look! My goodness, no.
