Historical fashion research and online sewing journal
I am planning to make this dress sometime this summer! I loved it in the movie!To add the front gathers to the S&S pattern you would cut the bodice front piece off the fold at an angle. The bottom of the piece would be touching the fold (where it's supposed to be) and the top would be a couple of inches away from the fold (further onto the fabric). I'll take pictures when I make it!
Ohhhh!!! Thanks so much, Caroline!!! THANK YOU!!! :-D I can't wait to see how your dress turns out! I'm sure it will be beautiful!!! :-D
I was looking for a picture of all the Wives and Daughters hairstyles and found your blog. I had to comment here because I have a dream of getting this dress made for my daughter's 16th birthday (2 years away!). I am no seamstress, sadly. I would also love to see pictures and figure out a way to get this dress made. Lovely blog - be blessed!Kim
