It has been so hot here, getting photos of this dress has been a nightmare! The first time we went, we gave up after about 20 minutes, but the second, we managed to stick with it long enough to get some good photos! I have to say as much as I love summer, I’m ready for the weather to cool off.
The robe de style, pannier, and headdress were completely made by me. The pattern was based off a pattern from Laughing Moon Mercantile. And for those who asked, the feathers in the headdress are dyed ostrich feathers!
Sorry for there being so many, it’s just I had so many favourites I really couldn’t pick! I was worried halfway through about how this would turn out, but I’m happy overall with the result now I’m seeing it finished! It’s always a bit worrying when you’ve put so much effort into a project and you’re not sure it’s going to look good, but it’s also very satisfying when it turns out just as nicely as you’d hoped it would.
I’ve got a couple projects finished that I need to photograph, mostly of clothing I’ve been making – my back to school wardrobe is going to be full of vintage style skirts! Hopefully I’ll be posting about those soon.
