so, i'm not quite done. i still have to put the black trim along the bottom of the bodice and along the hemline. why black? well, halloween, you know. what do you think? i've made this completely from 'scratch'. all by myself. is it regency enough? i had to take in my dress form cover because, if you remember, she was about 4" larger than me at any given point. it may not seem like much, but i was really struggling to put my clothes on her. i was starting to wish i had gotten the smaller model, and feeling sick about it. but now, after some easy modifications and some wrestling around on the floor to get the cover back on, she's only about 1" larger than me and i easily got the dress on her. and i feel much better.
