Blue Taffeta Hooded Dress

A Renaissance themed gown vaguely inspired by Cranach paintings and costumes seen in “The Three Musketeers”. It’s made mostly from six yards of blue stretch taffeta and several yards of off white chiffon. The chiffon is lined with satin and the bodice is lined with cotton. The dress is decorated with hundreds of small glass pearls to create lacing and embellishment on the bodice.

The hood has buckram in the brim to keep to keep it’s shape, and attaches to the dress with buttons and loops.

It was all designed, drafted and sewn by me.

I have one post that covers how it was made, and it can be read below!
