The dress is made in three pieces: bodice, underskirt, and asymmetrical overskirt. I also made a petticoat to go with this dress out of scraps of muslin. It's kind of patchwork-y, but it does the job and it's not like anyone was ever going to see it...plus, I didn't have to spend any money to buy fabric for it. The materials all came from my fabric box.
I added scrollwork to the cuffs with some soutache trim leftover from various projects. That ended up being an elegant touch, along with hand-worked button holes down the center front of the bodice. To keep the collar closed I employed a vintage garnet brooch that I inherited from my grandmother.
To be honest, the hat is nothing special, but I was right up against the wire getting this dress finished in between classes. I got this hat from a local boutique and just added some flowers and feathers. Like I say, nothing special, but it did the job.
The following photos are from a Doctor Who party put on by my friend after the Victorian Stroll. I decided to style one of my black wigs to look like Jenny Flint of the Paternoster Duo. I even won the costume contest for best recurring character! The Dalek cupcake was really tasty and I have the little poster hanging on the wall next to my bed.
