Regal Regency

Well I don't have too much time left here, so I'm just going to let you enjoy the pictures! This was made from (sadly) a poly/linen blend, (I was close at least and I couldn't beat $2 a yard!!!) that was on sale at JoAnn's and the pattern was the Simplicity Regency pattern. My mom and I had such a blast taking these! and all before the color was entirely gone. :D



So enjoy!!




















Ps.. The hat was a fluke... it was a decorative wall hat I had made the mistake of buying, and when folded, it gently resembled a regency hat... (not really) hope you liked the pics!!

pss.. head over to Sahd to have a look at some photoshoped pics I did... and I'll upload the rest of those soon. :D

Beautiful pics, Meggie!! :) I think that the regency era is my absolute favorite (of course, loving Jane Austen's stories helps). You look every inch the Austen heroine.

Great pictures! Love the dress! And no, you can't beat $2 a yard! I was so excited, I got some super cute plaid fabric for, get this! $1 a yard! An awesome steal!

hahaha thanks! I wore an "Anne" dress to my grandparents a few weeks ago and my mom was terrified we would be stopped by the police and we'd have to explain why I was dressed like I was!! lollol! (I guess that's close to pizza hut!!)

Very nice pictures! I love getting good fabric from Joann's for little cost. You got your money's worth!
