The curtain dress

One day I'll blog more again, I promise!  But real life has been busy and when things are slow after the craziness I'd rather read than write... But I did actually finish the curtain gown a while back so here are the pictures I've been meaning to post for forever it seems.  It is paired with my Target "Shabby Chic" curtains fabric petticoat and a hat I bought at Costume College a few years back from Atelier Mela

Enjoy!

    1. It's my basic 18th C body block pattern which I've used for years which is an altered the period impressions polonaise bodice.

  3. I love it. I bought the dark curtains too so it's nice to see how they made up!
