This is a dress made from Jennie Chancey’s Girls’ 1780s Portrait Dress Pattern. I made a bodiced petticoat to go with the dress. http://sensibility.com/patterns/girls-1780s-portrait-dress-pattern/
I have learned how to use a lucet, so I made the drawstrings for the dress and the petticoat. It’s wonderful to finally have drawstrings that match the projects I am working on. I used both cotton and linen string to make the drawstrings.
Made out of Swiss dot cotton voile fabric. The bodiced petticoat is made from linen.
The results are in! Check out our winning submission.
