18th Century Gown -prettier by Verdaera 18th Century Gown -prettier by Verdaera
Here's my 18th Century Gown again, with a prettier picture at done-up hair! I know my glasses aren't period, but they had them back then so who cares. My mother spent 2 nights trying to devise a hairstyle that would work with my hair and it turned out awesome. My hair's thin and I couldn't get a pompador :p

Again, all silk, hand-pleated trim, over a fully boned corset and pocket-hoops. I will be adding a fichu, embroidered lawn ruffles, and hat soon, and hopefully shoes.

Picture taken at Dragon*Con 2009 before the Friday Night Costume Contest. Sorry the pic isn't bigger. Thanks to ~hellostrawberry for pointing the pic out to me :)

This is gorgeous! You must have spent so much time on those box pleats.... well, you must have spent a great deal of work on the whole thing! I feel so tempted to make a silk gown now... but of course I have no need of one :P

Regarding the hem: I don't know about 18th C. practice but in the 19th C. it was more common to adjust length from the waist and not from the hemline. Also, in the 19th C. most nicer dresses had the hem "faced" with a different type of material to take the wear and tear of brushing against the ground better. I doubt you want to go that route now after all the work you've done on that beautiful hem!

A really lovely dress. :D
