About this Costume
Construction Details:
I used the same pattern for the bodice as my 2005 version, since I liked it a lot. The shoulder wrap was pleated taffeta.
The skirt was also taffeta, with the swags being more pleated taffeta, and layers of organza. I beaded the shoulder pieces and skirt seams, and added roses to each connection point, and little roses throughout. The shoes were dye-able shoes I bought and added ribbon to.

My wig is an Arda wig, that I added the widow's peak to.

In 2013 I revisited the dress and added some more beading, fixed some skirt issues and added another swag. I also wore it with my Marie Antoinette panniers instead of my round hoopskirt, which I liked a lot more, though now I need to fix the hem if I'm going to keep wearing it with that.

Personal Thoughts:
I still love my 2005 version but wanted to make a new, different version.
