Challenge #1 has been officially completed and well before the deadline of the 14th but we have been a little late in posting our results. Since we decided Regency as the era, our dear friend Mari's request for an evening gown using some fabric she had found was the perfect candidate. Matti drew and painted a sketch and then created the full ensemble including gown, stole, headband and pelisse.
Gold shantung faux silk, dark olive green shantung faux silk, cottons, sari fabric and gold embroidered mesh trimmings.
solid and sari pattern
Year: Around the year 1813.
Notions: Beaded frog closures
How historically accurate is it? 5/10 as it is mostly machine sewn and the
shoulder seams could have been further back by an inch.
complete: Around 7-8
Worn last Friday by client for a Regency event
