An Afternoon at Pemberley by Melissa Horozewski

An Afternoon at Pemberley

What would you wear to Pemberley? Bring a romantic flair to your day by stitching up this elegant empire-waist sheath. Once you slip into this feminine, sleeveless off-white dress, your Mr. Darcy’s heart will skip a beat and an invitation to dine is sure to follow. The fantail stitch makes for a design much simpler to make than first appearances imply and it creates a scalloped hem with no extra work from you. Create the flattering empire waist so prized during Regency times by crafting the matching monk’s cord to tie below the bust. Or put your own modern twist on it with a skinny belt or a colorful slip to wear underneath for a striking contrast. Ironing the silky acrylic yarn beneath a pressing cloth results in a sophisticated finish that will have your acquaintances thinking you are most accomplished.
