Here is my first attempt at a Regency dress. I hope to get a photo of me IN the dress soon. At the very least, our local Jane Austen Society is having a tea in May, and I should get photos of myself and others there.
Not much detail here to go by, I know, but I'm open to comments and suggestions for improvement.
Thanks! I'm hoping it's appropriate. I'm not normally a "pink" kind of person, but the dusty rose kind of appealed to me. I've looked at dozens of portraits, fashion cards, and the like to get a feel for the right look. I've got some other fabric waiting to be used that is white with small brown and light blue leaves block printed on it. I just wasn't ready to wear white yet! ;-) I'm usually a dark color type of person.
Here at last is a photo of me wearing the dress and bonnet. We had a nice Mother and Daughter tea Saturday before Mother's Day. This was taken before I left home. Only two other ladies chose to wear period garments but, unfortunately, I didn't remember my camera. :-(
