I bought this gorgeous tangerine colored sari from Julia Bennett and finally finished a drawstring dress out of it. It's my favorite style of regency dress (though to be fair, I've only made one dropfront), and with time at a premium, I just went with what I knew. I think the embroidery is so pretty and somehow I lucked out and the front and back skirt embroidery lined up perfectly. I totally planned it that way. Yup. ;))
Excused my stays showing through the back. As you may or may not recall, I commissioned stays because I couldn't deal with cup gussets and I bought a pair that backlaced with a metal busk in front. They actually did have such things in the late late 20s. I won't claim these are totally period accurate for all regency, but they are comfy and easy to get into.
Now for the pictures!
