I'm trying to decide how I blog my costume plans for next April's aussie Austen festival. I could start a separate blog or start a new tab thing on this blog.
Anyway, a teaser. I've been planning to make this dress for ages, but first want to make new stays to fit it over. It's from a 1799 fashion plate, and I had both white and red fabric for it already.
However, I'm using the white fabric for my Dr Who nightie costume, and am going to make this out of black voile. Possibly with blue trim - as I've seen a few extant black gowns with blue trim.
