Add a Little Trim...

Here's a peek at what I've been adding to my Regency dress. The bottom gathered/rouching (sp?) type trim was inspired by the popularity of trim on the hem of the dresses in the 1810s. Below is a fashion plate with an example.

I'm currently adding another layer of lace to the upper tuck.

I even put some more narrow gathered trim like the skirt hem on my sleeves.
Not sure if that's accurate to the period, but it looks lovely!
Once I'm finished I'll put the dress on and take a few pictures.
Here is a dress with similar trim on the bottom. (ca. 1822)
