Item details

Inspired by gowns worn during the Edwardian period, this gown is a perfect choice for a “fancy” gown that can be dressed up or down. Depending on your fabric and embellishment choices it can be appropriate for an afternoon stroll at Downton Abbey, or an elegant gown for evening festivities on the Titanic.

It has a 3/4 length sleeve, edged with eyelet or lace. The high waist is accented with a two-tier ruffled peplum edged with lace, and a matching waistband encircles the bodice.

The skirt is narrow and fitted, typical for the period. It has an inset front panel, edged with lace and embellished with optional seed pearls. The bodice has an inset lace panel for just the right touch of elegance. This dress can be made of cotton for a simple look for day, or silk for an elegant evening ensemble.

Instructions for making the hat can be found at Pixie Faire in the pattern called “Heirloom Hat”, and instructions for the purse and gloves can be found in the pattern called “Dress It Up”. Or choose to buy the bundle and save.

Supplies Needed:
-5/8 yard cotton, silk, or satin fabric

Average review
Wonderful pattern and the dress turned out fantastic! My only critique is that the step about attaching the waistband was a little confusing to me (but that may be because I'm more somewhere between beginner-intermediate skill wise). Overall the steps, photos and pattern were well done and I was super pleased with my end result.
