I made this dress awhile back and love the way it turned out. It's not completely handsewn, however I did sew all the seam allowances down. I used a wonderful pattern to help me and would recommend this to any other novice sewer. I did have to fit my gown to my body and alter the base pattern but that's what is expected when our bodies have their unique curves :)
I am not wearing any undergown underneath this dress in this picture, so my boobs are not supported as they should be! But I just wanted you to get the idea. I dyed my hair to match the original artwork I found for an added touch (that and the fact that I was feeling spontaneous enough to do it). My hair is back to normal now :)

My first official post! The U of A has frustratingly messed with my old blog and changed my ualberta e-mail. So unfortunately I can't log into my old account. But on the brighter side I am going to revamp my costuming blog and organize it better! Also! I'm going to add more lovely pictures of my garb!
