1795 Chintz Round Gown

Here it is! It took about 10 hours of sewing, by hand, to complete. I am quite pleased with the results and I can’t wait to wear it at an event. Enjoy!

I also finished the voile gown, but I’m not going to post it’s own pics because it’s not that exciting and you can see it in the previous post. God Bless!

Love,

It's gorgeous! It looks like straight from a museum. Want!

What Alisa said! :) Very, very pretty. What pattern do you use for your round gowns? I'm exploring my options for my white striped one.

I think I am going to have to go with earlier regency if we go to the JA festival since David likes 1790s styles for menswear best and is longing to wear a cocked hat.

So handsome and so nice to see a patterned round gown. Like Sarah Jane, am curious about your patterning resources for this one.

Very best,
