Your dress is perfectly amiable! I do not doubt that your figure will appear to the greatest advantage should you chuse to take a turn about the room.

You've done a great job, & we'll look forward to seeing the finished pic. Having an even feed foot for your machine will alleviate most nightmares of sewing with lightweight or slippery fabrics! Well worth a small investment. Congratulations on perservering.

Nice Jane Austen intro! And the dress will be lovely too!

You have done a lovely job on this. I like your change to the front bodice. It's so satisfying to make 'mistakes' that work out to your advantage, and make something unique to you, as well. The low contrast of your two fabrics works beautifully with your coloring. Perhaps a side trip to Pemberley is in order?

Lovely gown. There are frequent events for this kind of thing and I think as you look and get in contact with people who enjoy reenactments, Victorian tea parties, etc. they will come out of the woodwork -- you will be pleasantly surprised. Now you need gloves and if going out, probably a hat/bonnet and a jacket. I think Butterick has a lovely period jacket pattern.

This is such a lovely dress! You've done a beautiful job! I've often considered making this one myself as I completely agree with your introduction. When you find a tea party or such to attend, please share pictures!

That dress is amazing!! I would never have thought to put a lighter-colored chiffon overlay on darker fabric -- it gives it a kind of iridescence. Also, I *love* your description and review!! :)

Great Review. I'm making mine for the Jane Austen Festival in Bath next year...but am wondering how to make it adaptable enough to wear as a normal summer dress afterwards. Got some floral print 'poplin' and ribbon.
