London, United K...
I made this over Christmas and on into January, to wear at Gala Nocturna. The ball this year had an Elizabethan theme – as someone not too accustomed to that era, I decided not to make a 100% historically accurate gown but instead took elements that i liked from Elizabethan and Tudor styles.
Foolishly maybe :-), I made the outfit without the use of commercial patterns.
For the corset I used an online Elizabethan corset Generator to draft my own pattern and the skirt and sleeves was drafted up based on similar items I’d made in the past.
Oh yes, i also made my partner’s cape and hat too! (hasty addition, as i realised the best pic of my dress also had him in the photo too!!)
taffeta, brocade, furnishing fabric, venise lace, pearls, hotfix rhinestones.
