So, this week has seen the sewing up of a Peter Pan shirt and hat, a stomach virus interlude sweeping through myself and the children, and I finally got the Girl's Regency dress pattern from Sense and Sensibility traced and the fabric cut out. Hopefully everyone will feel better tomorrow and I can sew something!

So, my little princess has decided to succumb to her mother's intense begging and let me sew her not one, but two Regency gowns! The first will be the short-sleeved "Wendy" dress and the second will be a long-sleeved version in this cute print featuring children in Regency era clothing playing. Hey, she needed some more wintery dresses anyway. Plus, I've wanted to sew Regency dresses for a long time, but do not want to sew one for myself just yet as they remind me too much of maternity wear, and I'm not pregnant....right now, lol.
|I bought this when my Cowgirl Princess was a baby with the intention of making her a Regency gown out of it one day. I didn't have a pattern at the time, but knew this had to be a Regency gown.|
|And with his felt hat.|
|It's kind of a deep purple with hot pink flowers, but for some reason didn't show up that way in pictures.|
Ahh..doesn't a nicely folded stack of cut pieces of fabric just make you happy?
|Hard to believe this is enough for two Regency gowns, and one that is fully lined.|
