Just a little blurb here, the dress is not historical, made only for modern wear. But it's still cute and I like it, and thought you might want to see it :).
Stats: Around 4 yards of sheer red cotton, bought for a regency dress that never got made. Lined with sturdy white cotton sheets. 6 buttons. Draped. Side zipper.
|I thought I'd try and join the bandwagon of adding pretty fonts to photos. Yay or nay? What would ya'll think if I started doing this?|
|I feel very Edwardian for some reason....|
|cloth covered buttons|
|there are three 1/4 inch tucks on each side of the bodice front, and on the skirt|
|I lightened this photo so you could see the checks in the fabric that are lost in most of these photos. It really is a lovely fabric!|
|top stitching on the waistband|
|the box pleats|
These were the main pictures I used for inspiration. (via Pinterest)

|one of many box pleated frocks. I also box pleated because that's good for spoon body shapes, or so I read. Seems good to me :)|
