read your post on the S&S board, wow, that dress is lovely! and what an accomplishment to hand sew so much of it! i never have enough patience for that. :)
Gorgeous dress!! I love handsewing, but have never done it on that scale before - wow!AmyCherry_Ames on S&S
Did you use a pattern for your white sheer dress?
well, I used my friend's pattern that I think she created...but it is really just a simple gathered bodice and poof sleeves with a ruffle. The skirt I just cut 4 panels and put 5 half inch tucks and a 5 or 6 inch hem and then gathered the skirt and attached it to the bodice.
You make it sound so easy!
haha, well, it wasn't really. I mean working with such delicate material was kind of scary and a hassle!!! But everything turned out so pretty, I wouldn't have done anything any other way! :)
The dress is lovely, but I was attracted by your interest in Civil War Reenactments. I was a member of a group that played ONLY at Reenactments for a couple of years. We had a lot of fun playing in the Arkansas area. We had 3 15 tune sets that we played. Each set started and ended with Dixie. Needles to say we played only tunes from the South.Fiddlebob
thank you for your comment! yes I really enjoy Civil War reenactments and I am definitely a southerner. me and my friends always are jamming at the reenactments we attend and dixie and the bonnie blue flag are difinitely a favorite! :)
I am curious what pattern you used if any?Your dresses are beautiful
