This spring marks five years of blogging and I've passed a costuming milestone--27 dresses. Here are the gowns I've created since I was bit with the costuming bug in 2009, in no particular order. (For definition purposes I have not included infant gowns, short gowns or bedgowns since these garments are relatively simple to construct and do not require setting sleeves.)
