I have been lucky enough to have a commission. I am doing it for a friend, therefore, My pricing has been..friendly. I already posted on here the success of the stays made for said commission. Now onto the dress. She chose a blue on off-white printed flowers that looks like it was block printed. Here is the sleeve being hand sewed.

This project of stays has been a challenge to all my meager skills and I have to toot my own horn on this one. The cups/gussets on this do EXACTLY what I want and need them to do and that is keep a high busted empire line set of ladies. A good fashion plate example of what we are shooting for is a la Dames A La Mode for Feb 1812

As some of you may know, I have been corresponding with friends and some new people to me via the month of letters. I have continued since and have received some letters from various places that are both pleasant and joyous. I received a letter from Mrs. Weissner and I responded in like....since we are writing in the 1812 parlance. I'm eager to receive a response. As well as from Mrs. Hanselmann in Germany. I am so used to instant gratification that I wish I could check my mail box digitally!!! IMPATIENT! Although I know that once I have a letter or two in hand, I will be delighted! sigh. Yours Truly Mrs. Azevedo
