That is really really great.  Did you make a corset?  What is the fabric?

It sounds stupid to say it out loud, but dresses like this make me wish we all lived lives where we could wear costumes of any and every kind without seeming odd. This one, I'd have to be careful not to close it in the car door as I leave for the grocery store. It looks fabulous. (And maybe tomorrow I'll be a 20s flapper, and the next day a pilgrim...)

I've got nosy questions. About how long did it take you to make, and about what was your total cost? What was the event you wore it to, and were other people also as elegantly costumed? (I bet not!)

Mim, who seems to be on a prying jag today

Nice to be here!

Lovely! I think I used the same  pattern. for my Marie Antoinette dress.. not 100% sure, since I altered mine a lot. eep!
Anyway, I like your choice of fabrics, and the hat just completes it! Cheesy

That's amazing!!  Was there a separate set of panniers, or are they built into the skirt?  Also, did you wear a separate set of stays with it, or is the bodice boned?  It has a really smooth line.
