This is the first dress I can add to my stitcher portfolio.
This dress was made for Opera Theater St. Louis for the Opera "The Ghosts of Versaille".
The weird thing about being a theater stitcher is you never do anything from start to finish yourself. The costume designer for this play, James Schuette, handed our draper this ( [link] ) portrait of Marie Antoinette and some gorgeous fabrics and said 'make it'. The draper, Lee Viliesis, made the pattern.
With the exception of last-minute alterations, I constructed the dress. The dress has an underlayer of a pale gray silk. The overlayer I am not positive but I suspect if it wasn't all silk it was cotton with silk stripes. You can't see it, but the gray sash continues into a bow in the back. I had fun making it I'm tempted to make myself one but I'm so tiny I don't think I could pull it off.

Note: Don't use as stock, not my photo, so I'm not sure it's allowed to be used in anything other than my portfolio
Just a little dress, inspired by middle ages. I say inspired, because I know perfectly it's absolutely not historical. But, still, quite nice looking and quite fun to wear
Voilà, une petite robe d'inspiration médiévale. je dis d'inspiration, parce que j'ai parfaitement conscience qu'elle n'est pas historique pour deux sous. Mais bon, elle est plutôt jolie et sympa à porter
