I left feedback for our three early-bird senders.  ScotSkipper and Torrance got doubles, but I filled out a help desk ticket and the mods should get to that within a day or so.

Wow! The dress is just lovely!  I'd wear it around town and glance archly at people Grin

A dress?  Wow!
  I'll be a bit late sending, I'm afraid.  I'm a bit behind in another swap.  After this one, I'll be retiring from swapping for a while!

Debbies only get respect in the knitting world.  How unfair is that?

Because Poe wrote on both of them.

Anyone up for a Jasper Fforde swap?

That's fine, knit_core.  I haven't been able to finish the last piece for you, so no rush!

That dress is absolutely amazing.  It's going to be a lovely Halloween costume!  Smiley

I was just informed by ScotSkipper that I had the dress on BACKWARDS!  Grin  I was wondering why the bust was so small!  I'll be retaking the pictures later today.  Hee hee!

That's because you didn't have your maid to dress you... Tongue

Thanks!
I must compliment Madam Miyoko for not disturbing her maid. AND for being so gracious about what must have been disappointing, to start with.

Dope slap to me for not putting a label on.  Smiley Really -- I should have, because I'm proud of that frock, which does look better with the buttons in the back.

It's Folkwear pattern 105 http://www.folkwear.com/romantic.html and not that complicated to sew... once you figure out the shoulder seams. They're nowhere near the shoulders Smiley

I got Official Permission to do one great big project instead of a small, medium, and large. And I don't have official permission to mention that I do personal swaps  Wink But I do personal swaps.

I was thinking that a button up front was a little unusual for regency...If it looks that nice on backwards, it must be stunning the other way!   Cheesy

I've never used a Folkwear pattern, though I have heard nice things from several people.  I've used Period Impressions and Sense and Sensibility patterns, which I would definitely recommend.  PI has a bib-front regency gown pattern that is front fastening, for those of you who don't want to disturb your maids, LOL!  Though my regency corset is decidedly back lacing, so I always need help with that.
