Hello again!

I've got another project that I just finished last week to show you all! Some Regency day wear! Yay!

The brief was to create this garment in mostly calico, with other bits of silk, cotton voile or trims that would fit the period allowed. I chose to replicate an actual garment that exists in the Victoria & Albert museum in London. I had pictures of it from my book "Nineteenth-Century Fashion in Detail" by Lucy Johnston












Sorry about the photo quality, it being winter here, its hard to get some nice natural light. I will be having some professional photos taken during our annual show, so I'll post them once I have them.

Thanks for looking!

[update 27th November 2008]

FINALLY! My college has given us the professional photos taken during our show in august!

Absolutely gorgeous! This puts my dislike of the decade's clothing to utter shame. Good job!

Haha, at first I thought the pictures were of the original dress in the museum.  I kept wondering when you were going to post the one you made.  Nice work!
