My Alter Ego's Been A Busy Bee

As you may have read before, I work under the pseudonym of Lucy Jane Pennybright.  Lucy Jane is a seamstress of historical clothing and goods, as well as whimsical toys and other lovely things.

Lucy Jane's first 19th C. commission was for a full set of under things (minus the corset), a day dress, and a ballgown, all done in time for the reenactment event of the Battle of Resaca GA.

The day dress is almost done.  It should be complete tomorrow around 3 or 4 in the afternoon, barring any bizarre catastrophes.

But the ballgown, the hardest thing to make technically, is finished.  I thought you might want to see it.

Here is one photo, and you can find more here on Lucy Jane's blog.


  1. Wow, that dress is amazing! Well done!

    Re: Gratitude list. I think that's a fabulous idea. I've just let mine continue to pile up from the beginning; I think I show two weeks in the sidebar but when I click on it I can see all of them. But monthly archiving is a great idea!

  2. Thank you! I'm very proud of it! :)

    AHA! I bet if I had played longer with the settings I would have found that option. But it was faster to ask you! ;) I like keeping it semi-limited in the sidebar. I don't want it to get TOO long. So I think I will make it set to two weeks but still copy and post the archives for fun. :) Thanks!

  3. It's beautiful. What a gift you have. Thanks for sharing. I did, very much, want to see the finished costume. Now, I'm popping over to your alter-ego's site. Come visit when you can and enter the give-away!
