I made this dress last summer for no particular reason except that I liked it and I'd made a corset earlier and needed something to wear with it.

This is the first project I'm posting, so if the picture doesn't show up, here's the link, which will hopefully work: click me

  I wore it on Halloween giving out candy at my mother's house--and not one person said anything about it!!!!  I was a little miffed about that.  Anyway, it was from the Butterick 3640   pattern.  I skipped the ruffle at the bottom because I had no way to easily pin it evenly to the bottom of the skirt.  There are a few little mistakes here and there, but overall I think it came out damn well Kiss

That's a beautiful dress!  1750-1800 is a great period for fashion.  Someday I'd like to recreate some of the costumes from Brotherhood Of The Wolf (french psuedo-historical horror film).  Maybe this Halloween...


Every now and then when your life gets complicated and the weasels start closing in, the only cure is to load up on heinous chemicals and then drive like a **** from Hollywood to Las Vegas ... with the music at top volume and at least a pint of ether.

Now, all you need is a towering powdered wig, preferably with a sailing ship or at least a bird's nest in it, and you'll be good to go!

Love the dress...can't believe no one commented on it!

Amazing!  I love the bodice on it, I can believe no one said anything!

Heh, I like that you made it to 'wear with the corset.' Smiley

That's absolutely brilliant.  You should definitely wear that all day and go about like you're dressed completely normally.  Wear it to Starbucks or McDonalds or something....  You get funny looks from people.

But back on topic, hehe, I love that dress and the 1700/1800s.  I wish I had the patience to make one of my own, but all the ruffles and flounces would drive me crazy!
