FDC Regency dress
The Challenge i made was to create a regency dress ala Jane Austen.Sysy Chapman was the one who got this challenge.
This high-waisted dress known today as «empire» was worn in the period following the French Revolution in the late 1700s.
In this period, fashionable women’s clothing styles were based on the Empire silhouette — dresses were closely-fitted to the torso just under the bust, falling loosely below.
A Lady of Distinction also advised young ladies to wear softer shades of color, such as pinks, periwinkle blue, or lilacs. The mature matron could wear fuller colors, such as purple, black, crimson, deep blue, or yellow.
As you can see from the picture Sysy made a true regency gown,perfect for the era. Good job Sysy,Love your work:)
