Shot Purple Anglaise

This was the first 18th century gown I made and I haven't worn it since 2007, so I pulled it out for Costume Con.  Here are a few pics:

It looked pretty in the sun!

  2. I love the way this dress changes colour in different lights. Is it taffeta?

  3. @jenny - I'm not sure if I ever wore it to an event or not, other than DragonCon?

    @Malteselizzeiemcgee - Thanks! It's actually dupioni though it's very light and not terribly slubby. It was from Joanns. It was my first foray into 18th century, and I had it on hand so I wanted to not wreck expensive fabric my first time out!

    1. Thank you! :-) Costume Con is a yearly convention that moves around the country. It's hosted in a different place every year. Just google it and you can read more. There is also Costume College and Dress University. :-)
