Red Pride and Prejudice Gown

yoke and sleeve detail

yoke 
backsleeve detailfrontI made this gown for me to wear to the Pride and Prejudice celebration.  I was one of the chaperons.  But by the time I got done with the others it only left me half a day to make mine.  That was just not enough time.  I almost pulled it off I had it all done except for the zipper in the back of the dress.  Yes less than two hours more and it would have been done oh well that is life.  I have at least two more Pride and Prejudice celebrations and one  more David Copperfield one before my kids graduate high school.

So it will get worn just not at this time.  The dress is made from an upholstery fabric again with an upholstery zipper.  This is fabric that I originally purchased to make a Bingly sister dress for the play with the same name.  So it is funny how things go around and don't get used then sort of do but will in the end. I hope that made since did to me referring to original purpose of fabric for the play, then  making it for the celebration and not worn but will be in the future. I plan on wearing these with black satin elbow length gloves.  Yes this dress fits me but because I made it with a draw string at the neck and under bust it can also fit most of my daughters but it is a little long in the sleeves for them.  The youngest is still a little small but not by much.  Grrr tried taking photos at night did not work well had to wait a few days to take some during the day not sure they came out well either but there they are anyway.
