Regency drawstring dress for Mom

I don't think I ever posted about this. I don't often sew for other people but I wanted to make my Mom a dress to wear for costume events.  I decided to do a drawstring gown since it is at least adjustable. I did one fitting with a muslin and just had to run with it. The fit could be better in the shoulder/sleeve, but it's not bad for a first effort!
