I've wanted to make Sybil's purple dress for a long time but never got around to it. Finally, I was approached with a question of could I do this? I was excited to have the chance to do this. The client provided the materials and I provided the labor.
I really enjoyed putting this together. The hand cramps from sewing on 74 buttons, I could've done without though.
I'm planning on making one for myself soon. I have some red taffeta and red ribbon rosettes which would work nicely.

I also finished off my Jane Bennett ball gown from the 2005 Pride and Prejudice movie. I originally wasn't really planning on making this one. It was an accident really. Ironically I had cut my fabric the wrong way and wondered what to do with it. I went through Regency images for inspiration and came across Jane Bennett's dress. I thought it was a pretty dress and so it was born!

Until next time: Don't anger nice people. They can become the scariest you-know-what's when provoked.
