Must Make: Edwardian Gown

Lying in bed feeling tired and like I’m gonna get sick, I started spacing out on pretty dresses online. I started reconsidering going to the Steampunk Masquerade Ball here in town early next year and thought I should start looking into a dress.

This dress is my dress. I think I know how to put it together and I’d start with one of the Sense and Sensibility dress patterns.

Finding the perfect lace would be the trickiest. I wouldn’t go for an exact replica but something similar with the light and dark contrast.

I can have a pretty dress and I have somewhere to wear it. At this point, time and money are the only things stopping me.
