I finished M's Regency dress the other day. It's made from a red and white striped cotton left over from my late 1860's crinoline. I had to cut most of it from a failed attempt at the VandE 1866 crinoline (way too big) so the skirt front is cut a bit more narrowly to fit in the panels of that. The pattern is from the Danish national museum and is dated to 1800-1810. It's a combination of hand and machine sewing.

She loves it and said she never wanted to take it off. That made me very happy.
