My Regency Ballgown

My finished dress.  I'm extremely happy with the way it turned out!  I'm wearing it with my shift, stays and waist petticoat.  This combination gives the dress a beautiful line.

A side view.  You can see how much fuller the gauze is than the sateen lining.

And the back.  It closes with drawstrings, which makes a nice transition between the back of the bodice and the back of the skirt.  I love the back fullness of Regency dresses.
