My first regency dress


I made this Regency dress and pelisse from Jennie Chancey’s patterns. The little girl I made it for looked like a little princess when she put it on!

Reading through the entries on my blog, you probably think I’m obsessed with historical sewing. I probably am. But I am more obsessed with something else, or rather, Someone else. His name is Jesus. Some of you reading my blog know all about Him. For those of you who don’t, I’ll give a brief introduction to who He’s been to me.

He is my Refuge. Whenever I need a place of escape—when I feel overwhelmed, or upset—I go to Him. I feel it easier to be with Him when there’s no one else around, but if it’s not possible to leave, I talk to Him right where I am.

He is my Peace. I still struggle to trust Him fully, but I’m getting there. And when I finally learn to, I will have perfect Peace. He promised me, “[I] will keep in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on [me], because he trusts in [me].” (Isaiah 26:3)

He is my Lover, and my Love. I need no other to love me. That doesn’t mean that I don’t forget this at times and want someone else’s love, but it does mean that I will always know that Someone loves me. The most amazing thing is that I did nothing whatsoever to deserve this love. In fact, when He first loved me, I had made myself an enemy to Him. He still loved me, and eventually called me to Himself and taught me to love Himself.

He has been so much more to me, that I would never be able to write it all here. These three things have been the most important in my life, and I know that He has been other things in other peoples lives. The one thing that I know for a fact is that YOU need Him, and the things that He can provide you with. If you’ve already found Him, I rejoice with you. If you have not, know that I am praying that you might.
