Guest Posting and My Regency Dress

I have been asked by Charity at Austenitis to post on her blog while she's unable to, along with Miss Bennet from Elegance of Fashion. I will be doing that this week, and when I write a post for hers I'll link to it right here. If nothing else, I will have it for my personal reference. ;-)
Introduction post (interview)
Anne of Green Gables (movie)

Bleak House (mini-series)
The Love Letter (movie)
Sense and Sensibility Comparison: Part I *
Sense and Sensibility Comparison: Part II *

Sense and Sensibility Comparison: Part IV *
* with Miss Bennet from Elegance of Fashion

The other thing - I wanted to have a picture of myself in my Regency-styled dress for my profile, and I thought I might as well put a bigger picture on this post too, for anybody interested. Yes, I made the dress, and the hat too. =)

That's awesome! Did you use a pattern for the Regency dress? Which one?

Charity U said...

Love the dress and hat. :) Truly delightful. :)

Thanks for posting about posting...I appreciate it. :)

Melody said...

Miss Bennet: This is the pattern I used: http://www.simplicity.com/p-2088-costumes.aspx

And thanks, you two. :)

Melody said...

Miss Bennet: Oh, and it's the long sleeved one, in case you couldn't tell. I just made the sleeves shorter.

Miss Elizabeth Bennet said...

Melody,
I have that pattern! It's a good pattern.

Melody, I enjoyed reading your interview with Charity U over at Austenitis and learning more about you! I look forward to reading your guests posts there!

Your dress is so lovely! I really like the fabric color and the lace accents. And a bonnet too, how lovely! Oooh, that's the Regency dress pattern from Sense & Sensibility Patterns! I really admire you ladies who can sew and make such lovely things!

Liz, Abby, and Miss Laurie:
Thank you very much! I'm hoping to make a ball-gown type Regency dress before too long.
