|Maggie and me at Tea. This is the gown as original, with those beautiful long sleeves that were unfortunately too tight.|
I had to sacrifice the bottom half of the sleeves to generate fabric for the alteration, but I was able to open the under-arm seam and add in a couple inches.

|Shortened sleeves, quick fix.|
And voila! a couple quick fixes, and a "new" Regency gown. :-)
