My sister goes to the Renaissance Fair every year and this year she said she wanted a “real” dress, so I took on this labor of love for her in exchange for a gift card to my favorite fabric store. I have yet to receive this gift card. lol
Simplicity pattern #2589
Yards and yards of burgundy shantung and iridescent embroidered taffeta from Joann’s upholstery section. Broadcloth for the underskirt, cream taffeta for the inner sleeve, burgundy and gold stripe material for the foresleeve, green and gold stripe material for the contrast sleeve, felt, gingham and a ton of other notions and trims.
What do you think of these summery styles?
