1860s Victorian Day Dress by giusynuno 1860s Victorian Day Dress by giusynuno
Yaaaay for Victorian picnics!! :D
I made this day dress for the Victorian and Romantic Pic Nic in Monza two weeks ago :heart: it was a wonderful day!! Full of friends and friendly people very sharply dressed :boogie:
I love reenactments :heart:

So recently I'm a bit short of money, so to make this dress I had to work with small so I used two double layered 190x280cm curtains, remainings of a gold voile I used for an evening dress and various pieces of brown/gold trim with paillettes I had.
Total expense: 10€ XD I'm so very proud XD
I used double layered curtains because I wanted to achieve a late 1860s day dress effect, and in that era tarlatan cotton was very popular. Tarlatan is extremely flimsy and looks like voile, almost completely see-through, so what would work better if not 100% transparent polyester XD
I'm not particularly fond of liliac, but the other curtains were just TOO bright and I didn't want to look like....hmmm...an actress of the era XD
This gown is to be worn with a conic hoop skirt, fully corded petticoat and crinoline to achieve the right fluffiness :D

When I'll be over with my current projects I SO want to make a bustle gown *-* there were some beautiful ones at the picnic, I really want to try it too:heart:

Dress by: me XD
Photo&very poor edit by: me XD

I was a bit scared about the fabric (it's very cheap curtain polyester xD) so I'm happy it turned out all right :heart:
