Once again I'm behind in my posting, so many others have already posted about the wonderful pumpkin tea last weekend.  The food was amazing, the decor was lovely and the company was simply the best.   I made a 1790's style open robe with a full bodice, much like this and this.
To me, it looked like a croped d version of an anglaise, so thats how I constructed it.  I pleated the back to lining like an en fourreau anglaise, then constructed  the bodice with a combo of regency and 18th century techniques, plus whatever worked to get it together.photo 1792
 The fabric was from my trip to Williamsburg this summer. Underneath, I wore a swiss dot lawn dress.   I have to say, its one of my favorates, I just need to do something about the super white under gown.  Either dye it, or find a contrasting pink or blue to match the print.  But that's another time.photo 1791photo 1790
