Marie Antoinette dress

Made a small amount of progress on the Marie Anntoinette dress, i found 5 metres of a lovely blue silk fabric on ebay
As per usual the photograph doesnt do the fabric justice and the shade doesnt quite look right but it really is very close to the colour of the real thing i think.
I also found an antique broach which looks very much like the belt clasp that she is wearing on the red velvet belt
Its possibly a bit too small, but i think it will suffice :) Looking forward to starting making this although it will be a while before i can start, early may at the earliest.


  1. Can't wait to see the dress finished ! You always make gorgeous things o_o

  2. Wow, I love this film and the dress is really great. I'm already excited about how it will work and look forward to many many pictures.

    Kind regards Anne
