Description

The pattern is the rare Butterick 3012. It took me about 60 hours. It’s been a lot of hand ruffling. The bustle is made of ruffled tulle. The gloves are cutted out lace socks.

    Absolutely stunning work! Are you sure it’s only an “Intermediate” level? I’d have no idea where to begin. The photographs are beautiful as well. What a picturesque location.

      Yes it’s not that hard you know. I started by the bodice, then the skirt (very simple skirt) The hardest parts were the bustle and the apron. Now it seems quite easy to me but on the moment I was quite lost yeah ahah! :) Thanks you for the photos! I’ll tell my photographer eheh!
