Chocolate on my Cranium

Oh my goodness, the dress is gorgeous! Your daughter looks so lovely. Why can't we still wear dresses like that today? How exciting to pose for a painting too!


I love everything about It! You did great. (as always) I love how the gather in the sleeve almost has the look of Ric rac- so neat. I also love how the cartridge pleating looks in the first photo of Tashi. You can really see how it holds the skirt of the dress out if you look by her right arm and her waist line. You are so good! I can't believe it is your first dress.

Hello! I came across this post after doing a Google Images search for 1840's dresses. A friend and I are attempting our own reproduction dresses and I was wondering if you would mind telling me how you worked out your pattern. I really love the silhouette you ended up with.


Those dresses are gorgeous!! So I have a question...did you make up the pattern yourself???? That's amazing, either way. Would you mind pointing me in the direction of some 1840's dress patterns (if it was a pattern)...I'd really appreciate it. Thanks, Kami
