I looked through all your photos... I have literally never seen handmade era clothing so perfect, at least not outside of Hollywood. You should be costuming movies, my dear.

Oh my gosh, this dress. It's so beautiful! I would love to have a dress like that and parade around acting all foppy! Do you do commission's by any chance?

Absolutely gorgeous! I'd love wearing something like this ... and have an occasion to wear it. I don't think fashions came any more glamorous than they did in the 18th century.

How did you make this incredible work of art? :)
I'm now learning to sew. I really want to be able to make this type of gown in the future.

AlAlNe Featured By Owner May 18, 2010
Well... I cant say it was simple, these dresses are epic. But if you love the look that is what you should try to sew. Get an easy pattern, "simplicity" is a great way to start. Have fun!!

Hi! Thank you for the kind words,,, I'm in love with Marie Antoinette too. Someday I will get to Versailles! I would be happy to recommend patterns for you. The dresses aren't as hard as they look,,, they just take a lot of time and fabric. >o<
