An Edwardian Inspired Dress

April 13, 2011

Since seeing Mary’s stunning outfits on Downton Abbey a few months ago, I queued up a modified version of her striped gown for my Colette Spring Palette Challenge.

I have finally completed the outfits I have planned, and finished with the striped Spring dress.  I used a Sense and Sensibility Edwardian gown pattern and made some modifications.

I love the way it came out, though I’m actually tempted to try a version more closely matching Mary’s gown.  I just need to find the right stripes.  The small green stripes didn’t have the same effect but I think still turned out great for a fun Spring dress.
