Regency Roundgown - Finished Dress

Here are some photos of the finished gown! It was completed by inserting the waistline drawstring and hemming the skirt.

While I was finishing it I also finished reading Mansfield Park and I was saddened. I used to dislike that book more than any of Austen's others but now it is very close to being my favorite Austen novel. Odd??? I have no idea what changed my mind. The movie adaptions are still bad, though. In my opinion.

I took a few photos of me wearing it. Even without being custom fit and without stays, it still works pretty well! 

The gown is now is for sale in my etsy shop. I have started a new set of stays for myself although I am not sure when they will be completed. Now to finish my Benji-Boys 1860's unders. He has been sick this past week, poor fellow, and was more in need of snuggles and sleep than anything. Thankfully he has made a full recovery and is back to his cheerful, exploratory old self.
