Wow, a woman I know made one of the most amazing versions of the Titanic "jump" dress I've ever seen!

Puts my version to shame! Anyway, enjoy!

Thank you guys so much for the wonderful 18th century gown photos for my new fabric! Since I'm easily swayed and love to do group projects, I'm going to jump on the Polonaise Bandwagon and do Georgiana's gown from The Duchess (Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] bauhausfrau for the screen shots!). [livejournal.com profile] bauhausfrau even supplied me with a pattern that everyone seems to like: Period Impressions 1770 Polonaise and Petticoat pattern. Though one could also use Butterick 3640 (left hand version) in a pinch.



This all makes perfect sense as one of my favorite gowns from Marie Antoinette is her blue stripe polonaise (thanks to [livejournal.com profile] padawansguide's Costumer's Guide to Movie Costumes for the screen shots



All that floufiness is soo delicious!!



I think the fabric I have is a silk taffeta. I'll have to ask Beth for sure. Maybe it's faux? I don't know. It does seem to have a crispness to it, so I think it will work! I hope there is enough of the stripe to do both the overgown and underskirt plus trim!
