“Is Miss Darcy much grown since the spring?” said Miss Bingley; “will she be as tall as I am?”
“I think she will. She is now about Miss Elizabeth Bennet’s height, or rather taller.”
“How I long to see her again! I never met with anybody who delighted me so much. Such a countenance, such manners! and so extremely accomplished for her age! Her performance on the pianoforte is exquisite.” ~Pride and Prejudice, by Jane Austen
This dress reminded me of Georgiana Darcy since it's so soft and light. It's made of a sturdy 100% cotton fabric and although it is machine sewn all the seams are flat felled by hand so there's not a machine stitch to be seen! The hem is done by hand as well.
The long sleeves button on and off so it can be a short sleeve or long sleeve dress!
Custome Regency shifts are now available in the shop! Made from 100% cotton with a drawstring neckline: I love adding details, if you're interested in hand sewing, embroidery, crocheted edging, etc. just let me know!
I recently finished this Jane Bennet inspired jacket for a lovely customer. After it was done I renamed it the Jane Bingley jacket because the color reminded me of Bingley's coat. ;) It's made of 100% linen and fully lined.
Covered buttons give the garment a soft look:
Hand top stitching adds a handmade quality.

It was a fun project. I just love working with linen!
Although I didn't get any gowns done for Maid Marian Fashion Weekend I did get this necklace made which is inspired by...well, the bad guy actually. But he was a big part of Marian's life, if you remember. :) I was inspired by Guy of Gisborne's taste in fashion (lots of black leather) and what he might have picked out for the love of his life.
Guy seems to have a thing for leather...this lightweight leather cord is perfect to go with Marian's style. (Don't worry...Robin Hood is still first in her heart) And the blue stone and silver ringed charm add a bit of medieval elegance.
