Renaissance/Gypsy Dress

Here's another dress that I started a long time ago, and finally just finished. The skirt, blouse and vest were all fairly simple pieces, but I love the way the overskirt is pulled up with ribbon in the front. The triple lacing on the bodice is also a fun touch! I love white muslin poet shirts, and this one was no exception! I tried something new on this blouse - something I've been wanting to try for quite a while. I did hand-beading on the cuffs and neckline. I made up my own design, and pretty much just free-handed it, but I was very pleased with the results! I want to incorporate more hand-beading into future projects.  This dress is currently up for sale on ebay at:
