I need to find someone to make a regency ball gown for me. Please let me know if you know of a good dressmaker in the Knoxville area.

Let me check about that and get back with you. I am going to a Jane Austin Ball in Atlanta. The dress is long with a high waist, gathered skirt and puffy sleeves. The bodice has a sort of square neck. A friend of mine made hers and she said the bodice was tricky but the rest of the dress was not hard. Do you mind to tell me what part of town or Knox county in whack you live?

I am off the freeway. Northwest. Easy to get to.

I've checked a few patterns on the dress you are needing. Understand the bodice part. Meaning is tricky. But once again, having made costumes for some time...can understand tricky.

Just please keep in mind, things take time. So will need time to make it. Can not be done over night.

Indeed. Should be an easy ride for you. Just down the road and around the bend. Great!

You can private message me on Topix if you would like. Can give me your e-mail and we will go from there. I also can show you some of my work. See what you think.

Are you still in the business. I have a dress I would like to have made for an event on jan 25th. I know it's last minute. I had someone screw me over on a dress I was supposed to be having made. Now I'm going to have to dispute the purchase and find someone else if possible.

Yeah, over a year ago and she acts like you're bugging her for asking? If this broad hasn't gotten herself together in a year's time, that should tell you what kind of work you could expect from her.
