Description

It’s been a while since I didn’t post anything here, but it’s been a busy summer!!! ;) Here’s a victorian dress inspired by Nancy Peña’s new comic book “It is not a piece of cake”, introducing Aileen. I just loved how romantic she looked and I fell in love with the drawings of that dress… So, yeah… decided to make it!

The vest is based on an authentic victorian pattern, but I modified the lapel and made it round, and made it a little longer in the front. No pattern for the skirt. I made a bustle then draped the fabric on my mannequin. The pleated ribbons took me a long time to sew!!!

    Just beautiful! Do you have an occasion to wear this dress, or was it more just something you wanted, so you made it?

      This was a photoshoot for an artbook “Les carnets du kimono” (in stores end of november!). And I wore it to a steampunk party! ^^
