However, the dress Elizabeth made me is really good, so I thought I'd post some pics for you to get a closer look. The thing about it is, the elasticated waist and box pleat on the back make it excellent for doing housework, but the design overall looks formal enough to go out. If like me, you can't be faffed with incessantly changing clothes to suit the different demands of your day, this is good news.
So here it is. Please overlook foolish facial expressions and lamentable elderly figure. Look at the dress. On Graceful Threads, it's Eva's Yoke Dress. (Presumably prices will change over time)
Very similar to Lisa's Yoke Dress on The King's Daughters. Same pattern on lease, I believe.
Incidentally, though I always so much appreciate your kindness, there's no need to feel you should comment that I look glorious and divine — this post is really intended for people interested in similar clothing to get a good look at the reality. Many of the photos of such dresses online are on children or teenagers, and it's hard to figure out what the result would be on an adult, even elderly, woman. That's why I've posted them.
Looks good with an apron too. Mine is from Made In Hastings.
