So I wasn't able to say much about the summer Victorian gown project until the party was over, but now I can post about it.

I became enraptured with a white gown that Tissot painted several times. Then I saw this fashion plate that was very like the Tissot gown, but fancier. Perfect!! It's definitely much girlier than what I usually make.

Beth had many yards of a white stripe cotton gauze she gave me for the project. The gown was made from Truly Victorian patterns. The overgown is the Tea gown pattern...modified. It's flatlined in pink cotton. The gauze skirt is the fan skirt (without the fan or train) and the pink cotton underskirt is the tie back skirt.

Oh, that's so pretty and summery! I love it, especially because it's a departure for you!

Thank you! I might be less afraid of looking like a silly meringue now that I've pulled "frilly" off with success :)

Gorgeous! I love the dress! And you all look fabulous. It looks like it was such a fun time. :) Can I ask where you got your hat?

From: [identity profile] madamemodiste.livejournal.com
Thank you!

The hat was a plain straw one that I decorated from Truly Victorian, but she doesn't sell them anymore :(

OH MY GOSH!!! *dies** A Tissot white dress has been on my "wish list" for years! You have made it better than I could imagine! *swoon* Simply beautiful, and I think this is my favorite thing you've made yet!

Beautiful!! You look great in it, too. Looks like you should be enjoying a picnic in the shade of a large tree by a lake along side a handsome gentleman unpacking the basket of crystal glasses, wine, silverware and foods that the cook packed. Very prtty and summery!

Thanks! Turns out I did have enough fabric if I changed a few things, so it worked out! Whew!

Wow...!!!

{stunned}

I think this might be my favorite thing that you've ever done. Holy crap it's gorgeous. I love love the texture of the gauze and the ultra-frothiness of all the gathered trim, and in general the light summery feeling it evokes. The pink is a perfect touch. It just looks like *so much work* was put into this.

I hope I have a chance to see it in person someday!

As an aside, you know someone is old-school goth when they can still look GAF in a white dress with pink bows and a white parasol. XD

Wow, thank you!! I really appreciate that!

(and thanks for confirming I didn't lose goth points!! I loved that part!)

Beautiful gown! Such a different style on you, but it suits you very well. So light and summery you could just float away.

Yes, a departure from my normal more tailored styles :) Thank you!

Oh, that's beautiful! Love the way that it cuts away at the bottom to reveal the underskirt. And the white & pink looks delightful on you ^_^

Oh, you can so easily pull off frills and ruffles and *not* look like a meringue! And that shade of pink works so beautifully with your skin tone! *sigh* Oh to be able to get away with pretty girly like that. My envy knows no bounds. ^_^

That is gorgeous and flatlining with pink is a very nice touch. I usually don't like pink, but that barely hint of color is beautifully done.

Thanks! Yeah, I was nervous to do such a girly dress, but somehow it is still 'me' :)
