The medical issue we are addressing is being much less disruptive than anticipated :-) At the moment all systems are currently go!
We will update when we have further news.
Thank you to everyone who has checked in on us and for your messages of support.

We are going to be taking a much needed few days off between Sept 5th and 9th, we need to recharge our batteries. You will still be able to order and email and these will be dealt with on our return.

With this Romantic Era Dress pattern, you can create a wide variety of dresses for day and evening–plus a jumper that can be worn over a blouse made from the Romantic Blouse pattern. This pattern was inspired by the PBS production of "Wives and Daughters,” which motivated me to look into extant gowns from this transitional time between the Regency and Victorian eras. Thanks to Janet Arnold’s detailed sketches in Patterns of Fashion 1.

Sizes 6-26 all included in one ePattern. Illustrated instructions make construction easy! Options for long sleeves and short sleeves; darted, gathered, or pleated bodices; front or back closures; and five different necklines. Instructions for creating a period correct nursing dress–perfect for nursing moms!

PLEASE NOTE: The Blouse pattern is NOT included but is sold separately! Period fashion plates included to inspire your creations. Pattern appendix explains how to adjust the bodice front for ladies sized D and DD. Photo Instructions online.
The photos on this page show several different outfits you can make from this pattern (you could easily make a dozen different styles by mixing and matching necklines, sleeves, and bodice treatments). The pattern is rated intermediate because of the fitting techniques involved, but a patient beginner should be able to navigate the instructions without too much trouble.
