This gown took me about 150 hours of work. I really like it! It was quite hard but I enjoyed it ! I used Simpliciy 7028 and 7027.

    You do amazing work, I am insanely jealous of your talent. A quick question about your fan though, any chance its from the Jane Austen museum in bath? :P

      Thank you! I made it because I had to make a portfolio to apply to costume design schools and I wanted to make quite hard stuff so they would accept me in their school and they did!
