I was lucky enough to pattern test the Pride and Prejudice Dress, for Bella, from Nisabell Necessary. When I first saw Bella's Pride and Prejudice Dresses, I just loved the puffy sleeves, the empire waist and the gathered bodice.
The perfect fabric was already in my stash; a delicate rose pattern, given to me when a friend was de-stashing. I added the maroon band at the hemline, as I made a mistake with the cutting and needed extra length... totally my own fault and nothing to do with the pattern.
The Pride and Prejudice Dress is a very clever design, with the sleeves forming part of the neckline. Little Miss loves it and calls it her princess dress. To everyone else, it is instantly recognisable, as a Pride and Prejudice dress.
I'll let you know when the PDF pattern is available from Nisabell Necessary.
Oh, it's beautiful! And, I actually love the added band you had to add to the bottom - I think it's a nice touch! :)ReplyDelete
Sweet dress, I love your color choice! And I do too think the band you added is a great touch. It certainly is a princess dress!ReplyDelete
Gorgeous! The dress is delicate and feminine and oh so lovely! The dainty floral was the perfect choice for it.:)ReplyDelete

So pretty, pam! I like the band at the bottom, looks like it was meant there. :)ReplyDelete
Thanks, Olga. It's funny how a mistake can turn out to be a feature...Delete
Pam this is the A perfect dress ....ReplyDelete
lovely and thank you for showing the pics. I think adding the colored hem is so much fitting to the period of the dress, ladies in those times were so inventive in using up every scrap of cloth , and create Beauty!!!
