It was quite hot, especially with the wig, but I think it looked better with this outfit than my own hair. Today I'll wear something easier that easier to move around in, but possibly just as hot ;P
The pattern for the top is by Truly Victorian, and I have to say it's just brilliant! The instructions were easy to follow and the pattern was exactly what I wanted. It has little sleeves too, but I felt they were a bit too much and just left them out. I really like the look of the off-the-shoulder straps, they give the whole outfit such a nice silhouette. My favourite part of the bodice is the little pleated tail that falls perfectly over the bustle and definitely completes the look.
Do you have any big sewing projects under way? I'm already dreaming of a rococo gown, if only I can find my old patterns, because I should have the perfect pattern for stays that the gown needs as underwear.
