Another Round Gown… Really, Can One Have Too Many?

This gown was one of those projects that I needed after the Riding Habit of doom. It was easy, it had no issues, and it only took me 12 hours to make. Yes, it is possible to hand sew a gown and sew it  well, without cutting corners in that amount of time. Anyway, here are the pictures. Enjoy!

The inspiration. I decided to make it more simple than the original gown. I may go back and add the piping on the bodice later on.

Everyone needs a helper pet when hemming gowns.

I love that print! It reminds me a bit of this print on a gown from Jefferson in Paris.
