This dress took me about 150 hours of work. The mask has been covered by me. The fan comes from Venice.
You can ask for any details Cheesy

This is absolutely lovely!  Did you use patterns?  What did you use for the pink trim?  It's just gorgeous, you should be very proud!

For the trims, I sewed a pink tube and a green tube (larger) and then I gathered them together Cheesy

Great job and good choice on fabrics.  The mask adds to it nicely and I love your hair style.  Wonderful job on the trimming too!
You may want to tie the strings in the center of your panniers a little tighter to flatten out the front and back of your gown more though.  It will lay a lot flatter and not pouf out so much.  If you don't have ties, you can simply add ribbon from front to back inside the skirt of the panniers and tie until flattened a bit more.
This extant example shows what I mean by the flatter shape

I love the colors and details.  Smiley  I agree about squishing it front to back for a more authentic shape...

This is beautifully done, and I think your colour choice goes a long way towards making it seem real. Today we wouldn't think of pairing those two colours, but it's a very 18th c. combination. And I like your tip about the pannier ties, BennaeQuee. I've never known how the shape of those skirts is controlled.

Thanks for posting this, sirsinene. It's inspiring to see such nice work. And where did you find that lovely wall for a backdrop? It was a perfect choice!
