WIP: Why I've been so quiet

I realize my attention to my projects have been lapse lately. I want you to know I've been busy on a HUGE project. and I thought I'd share that with you.

As some of you may or may not be aware, I am a Regency Reenactor and this does require making Regency garments.

Over the Summer I decided to re-make one of my dresses-- in fact this one;

It took me a while to decide how I would re-make this dress but finally I decided to copy this actual Regency gown that has survived 200 years.

The construction of this dress is complete and now I am working on the heavy embroidery which in no way can compare to the original. But oh well.

Thanks so much for being patient with me while I work so hard on this extensive project. I'll be back soon with more modern DIYs for you.

In the meantime, please check out my Great Googly Eye Giveaway and don't forget to put in your entry!

  1. Oh...That is fabulous!! Your original dress was already very pretty. After you've done "surgery" on it it'll look stunning. I look forward to seeing the final product
