Austin, Texas, U...
Pride, Prejudice, and Zombies! This was last year’s Halloween outfit and it was perfect because I had gone back to work in a library (I’m a librarian but worked in corporate for most of my career). It started out as Jane Austen and quickly morphed into a zombie infection. This pattern is a lot of fun! It’s surprisingly easy, although it uses quite a bit of fabric. Regency era dresses are comfortable, too! If I didn’t run the risk of looking completely out of place, I would wear dresses like these all the time.
This dress gave me the perfect opportunity to use up some pinstripe heavy chambray that I never really loved and didn’t use for a previous project. I found some light voile-ish material for the dress overlay, but I really wanted to find a gauzy eyelet and didn’t find what I was looking for. The effect was still great! It really looked Austen-like.
