I was at a regency larp last weekend and made my own costume: a floral dress, a red and white silk dress, a spencer, a bonnet and two reticules. Alas I only seem to have photographs of me in the floral dress.
I also made a dress for my frind and a white skirt. This was my first time doing a garment of this scale. It worked well, and i learned a good few lessons (i.e. do not sew whilst tired). I didn't use a pattern, just guessed based on clothing i already had and copied pictures of appropriate dresses.

Thanks. Aparantly crimson red is the colour for Polish Nobility (as our characters were) so we got it in as much as possible. I was surprised by how much i liked the floral fabric; normaly i'm not a fan of tiny patterns like that but it worked out realy well.
