Reproduction Regency evening gown made in April 11 for a PEERS dance event that was not attended. Instead took photos of the peach gown in front of the flamingos at the zoo.
Worn again in 2017 at the Winter Dreams ball in San Diego. Photos by Nicholas Burlett.
April 2011 - In the garden
April 2011 - At the Sacramento Zoo
On second look at pattern instructions, the bodice may be wrong on this dress. There should not be the 1" folded portion.
The sleeve and hem flowers are held on to the dress by ribbon bows so that the artificial flowers may be removed when washing the dress.
