Lost Hope Fairy Gown

A few of us who are fans of the book/series Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell decided it would be fun to do fairies from the Gentleman with the Thistledown Hair's sinister manor - Lost Hope.  Mine is basically a regular changeable green/white silk regency gown with a sequined net open robe that I hand beaded with clear and iridescent beads and black freshwater pearls .  I wanted it to look sort of like fairy finery that had been drowned and tattered or left in the sea - a Lady in a Gown the Color of Shipwreck.

I still need to finish all my accessories but I'm pleased with how it turned out!

P.S.  You can catch a glimpse of the iridescent green pointy-toed flats I found on ebay to go with it.

    1. NOT hand-sequined mind you, the fabric came that way. ;) I just beaded the edges of the sleeves and hem.

    1. Thank you! The shoes are pretty crazy shiny in real life, hopefully I won't blind anyone. :P
