Outfit Inspiration: Lost In Austen

I'm not the biggest fan of Regency dresses. I find the Empire Waist dresses, while always said to be flattering on those 'what to wear' type shows actually tend to make most women look rather shapeless and bulky (in my opinion). They flatter the bust, true, but I much prefer dresses that have a waist at the normal place. Even if you aren't the fittest person, having a waist in the right place is just much more flattering in my opinion.

Still, I couldn't help but admire the ruffles on the front of this dress from Lost In Austen, and want similar details on a dress of my own. I need a seamstress, there's no way I'll ever be that good at sewing!
