– 1906 day dress

Status: wearable (but in theatre storage!)

Year finished: 2005

To Do: n/a

Inspiration: Girls’ Own Annual fashion plates.

I had wanted to make this from my own fabric but was supplied fabric for the dress and blouse by the director of the musical it was for (The Secret Garden.) I helped with hair for two castmates as well as myself.

The sleeves and skirt were trimmed with some vintage trim that was in the wardrobe department stash.

The skirt was made up in three parts with very wide and full gores.
