O.K. So it's Not Quite Victorian

I just could not help myself. I think the Regency Dresses made popular by the Jane Austen novels are just lovely. I bought this blue fabric with the intention of making a Civil War Ball Gown, but the longer it sat the more I thought it would make a gorgeous Regency Gown. So here it is the dress I've been working on this week. The rest of the week I plan to go back to making Civil War dresses!

I so, so want that dress! Now, when I think of Regency, instead of Jane Austen I think of Jane Fraser! My Janey at the castle would have worn fashion like that. I'd love to swish around the castle to see if it brought any of them out ;)
