What a fun project! It must have been interesting to work from a historical pattern.

I love this dress. Using tea to dye fabric gives it a lovely "antique" look. You can also use onion skins but it is a bit more yellow :)

Beautiful dress! I like the idea of stripe variation. You could consider dying a fabric to your likes if you don't find colours that suit you.

A very special dress and you look lovely in it.

Lizzie, I love it. You look like your should be strolling in the shrubbery of some 1802 garden instead of standing in Anchorage, Alaska!

This looks great. I do the same thing about hand sewing... sometimes a machine is just easier.
