1806 Whitework Regency (2011)

I do love fiddly embellishments on my costumes!  Having previously completed a Regency dress, I already had a basic pattern to fit me, so I decided what I really, really wanted was one of those diaphanous early-19th century gowns covered with hours of embroidery.  The dress is made of cotton lawn from Dharma Trading Co.  The embroidery motif was taken from images of period embroidery patterns scouted on ebay, and executed in three simple stitches: stem, satin, and stab.
