18th century symplified dresses

Nova Gorica, Slo...






We had 3oo anniversary of revolt in our town. A kind of festival in memory od people fallen during that period. We organized some market and a play. I was asked to sew 6 dresses with minimal costs and only 2 moths time to make them. Patterns are really very simple and made to be worn another year too. The two colored one was the first one, where I only tested the pattern, that did not turned out well. So I wore it.

      thank you. I guess during the process I got so bored that I didn’t see them as I see them now. I am really proud of myself after so many positive comments written here. I am really happy now:) iiiiii

    Be proud of your work despite the little faults…they take a lot of time with all that ruffles and I so like the first one the shade of green is nice

    Those are fun! For a simplified pattern not worn over stays, they have come out really nicely. Be proud of them. They remind me of doing all the 18th C kit three years ago…
