This is a dress I made a little while back. It's based on a sketch from one of my favorite books - Costume in Detail. It's a pale cream full length gown with a series of pleats at the bottom, a square neckline trimmed with lace over ribbon, puffed sleeves with ribbon ties, a gathered bodice front, and a gathered waistband. I like how it turned out, for the most part. It needs a couple of fitting adjustments, and I'd like to make it again with more historically accurate material.
