I Sewed myself the Strawberry Dress (But Made it Regency) | Red Dress from Emma 2020 | VA Mesh Dress

In this video, I draft a regency dress pattern using the draping method on a home made dress form, digitize the embroidery on computer software, stitch it out on an embroidery machine using dissolvable interfacing/stabilizer, then sew up the dress. I also show the undergarments involved with traditional regency dress. I also partake in a photoshoot with some very talented artists.
