Pattern suggestions needed, please.

Postby Quallus » Sun Apr 07, 2019 10:02 am

I really would like to make a dress like this lovely lady is wearing in this 1879 painting.
Which patterns would you suggest for the skirt and overskirt? Hard to tell since she is sitting but any input would be appreciated.

This looks like a princess dress, all in one. I know it is not exact, but I would use the new TV430 Polonaise pattern to make something cute and fancy with a similar look. It will need an underskirt, and if you want a train, then TV225 will work great. Petticoat TV125 under the skirt.

OK so one more. What would you suggest here for the under-and overskirt?

Sorry, trying to decide which one it will be. LOL

Let me make this visible for you.

That last link takes me to the entire Pinterest page, so not sure which dress you are asking about. Fabulous collection of pics, btw!

Wow, love this one. This would be a natural form dress, so TV225 for the underskirt. It is hard to tell what the overskirt is doing, but I would go with TV324, long drape overskirt.

That is what I was thinking about the overskirt as well. Just wanted to make sure.
Thank you so very much.
