More about the Easter Dress

Here are some close-ups of the latest sewing project. Using a white-on-white material, I made a dress using the Elizabeth Lee pattern #109 as inspiration. The waistline is raised to empire-waist. The skirt is a simple two-piece a-line type skirt, and of course there are different sleeves.Though it is difficult to see in the above photo, there is a bit of deep eyelet trim on the skirt.

The bottom of the flutter collar has been gathered up. This will be a perfect place for a pretty pin or a flower. I can always take the gathering stitches out for a different look, too!

The over-dress (I am not sure if it is a proper pelisse or not!) above was partly inspired by the striped dresses in the A&E version of Emma. I used the Simplicity regency gown pattern, making a front closing and omitting the sleeves.
