The 2017 Louisville Jane Austen Festival

Construction Notes On My New Little White Dress

I wanted a gathered front for adjustability, but I didn’t want to do the exact same construction as my green sarcenet gown. You see so many different ways of constructing front gathered gowns in this transitional period, and I wanted to explore more with this style.
