Here are some pictures. I'll eventually take some good ones, with appropriate lighting and a nice background, and please ignore the mess all around me.
bodice coming together
Enlarged pattern. I used a pattern from the book Period Costume for stage and Screen, 1800-1909, by Jean Hunnissett. I went for the 1800 drawstring bodice and the skirt and sleeves that seemed to go best with it.
As mentionned earlier, I still need some proper stays and a petticoat, or at least some sort of underskirt.
Yayy I did it! My very first Regency dress!!
