Newport , Kentuc...
I found some gorgeous ‘candlewicking’ fabric from the 1800’s on Ebay. The fabric was 3-4 yards, but was very tattered and discolored, so this dress required lots of piecing!
I used a pattern from the 1950’s to make the dress, and also made the bow belt by hand.
I LOVE the dress, but the fabric was very difficult to sew (and was especially hard on my sewing machine!)
Totally worth it though!!
