Lady Mary’s Garden Party Dress

April 9, 2012

I’ve been busy sewing away on another Downton Abbey inspired piece. For Easter, I decided to sew up Mary’s Garden Party/Flower Show dress from season 1.

I used Vogue 8648 as a starting point and then drafted away to make the piece more like Mary’s dress. I also got to use a piece of my great-grandmother’s lace that I inherited when she passed last summer so this project was very special to me.

I also retrimmed a hat to look like the one Mary wears with this dress at the Garden Party.

If you’d like to get more details, you can find them on my blog. And stick around because I’ll be doing a hat construction post and a dress detail post later on this week over at my blog.

 

  1. Gorgeous adaptation of Mary’s dress! I’ve been debating that same dress, but haven’t gotten too far yet, so your post is excellent info. Thank you!
