New Pattern!!!

Yeah!!! I'm sooo excited. I just recieved my new pattern that contains enough options to create an entire Regency wardrobe. Can you tell I'm in a bit of a Regency mood :-) I can't wait to buy the fabric and start sewing. I will hopefully go to the fabric store on Sunday to get my materials. I think I'm going to make the burgandy dress below, on Marriane Dashwood.

I don't think I will make it in the same colors, but I'm not positve yet. I need to see what kind of period correct cotton prints I can find. I will certainly post more pictures once I have the fabric, and once the dress is completed. I'm thinking it should take me about 10 days, if I hand stitch the entire piece. Yes, I'm a nut, but the dress is from the early 19th century and they didn't invent the sewing machine for many years later. So, of course I have to handstitch the gown. I can't wait to start.
The pattern, The Elegant Ladies Closet, can be found at Sense and Sensibility Patterns.
