Hello all! I still consider myself somewhat of a sewing novice, because I've only made a handful of wearable things at this point. But my most recent creation is a victorian dress (my fourth victorian dress to be exact), created for a Kentucky Derby-themed murder mystery my volunteer group puts on every year.

Firstly, a purse I made to go with the dress:

I later added some beads to the bottom and a cameo to the front of it, btu haven't photographed it since.

The necklace I made to match; I made the cameo out of sculpey and used beads from two old necklaces and an old pair of earrings.

A closeup of the dress, along with a hat I made:

My sad attempt at an action shot:

Thanks for looking!!

Novice?  I don't think so.  Your work is beautiful.  Love the cameo necklace. Thanks for sharing.

Looking at your ability to create, it is way up there. Your costuming skills are better then a lot of people's. I am from the Greater New Orleans Area, people here make costumes year around for carnival clubs, so I have seen many costumes over my lifetime.
