Sewing - A Regency Outfit: Part 2

And now the conclusion of my Regency outfit! And it's also my birthday! This gown was inspired from Elizabeth Bennet's gown from Pride and Prejudice (1995). I used Simplicity's Regency Gown Pattern, but made some alterations.

Pintucks! There are pintucks on the sleeves and the skirt.

Skirt pintucks! I'm really happy about the skirt pintucks!

 God Bless,
 God Bless, Miss Elizabeth Bennet


  1. The dress is very pretty!

    Happy birthday!!! :D

  2. I agree... the dress is lovely and beautiful!

    Now, if only a Mr. Darcy would walk by as you are wearing it!

    Happy Birthday Miss Elizabeth!

  3. Delightful.

    A very happy birthday to you! May God richly bless you in this new year. :)

  4. Lovely work, milady! And, happy birthday! Will we see you model your new creation? It appears to be a day dress rather than a ball gown - are you invited to afternoon tea?

  5. Miss Kathy,
    Probably not; I just post pictures on the dresses on the dress form. It is a day dress, but I haven't been invited to afternoon tea.

  6. What a lovely birthday present you made yourself. Exquisite workmanship.
