Sewing is coming along nicely for my Regency "trousseau". Ha! Yesterday I finished my second dress and now I can't decide if I want to wear this one in the promenade or the red one I showed you last week.
I went with a higher neckline and long sleeves with this one---a morning dress look. I love the option this pattern has for adding a waistband. Even though I don't have a tie running through, it just looks so nice and much less "nightgownish" than some of my previous dresses.
I also chose to do a tie back. Several references say this was the most common way to close up the dress in Jane's day.
I've done so many hand-stitched eyelets lately that they're really growing on me. Only 15 more days until I leave! I'm super excited!
