18th century striped anglaise

I found this fabric on ebay and held onto it for a LONG time before using it!

Here is the web page for my costume construction details and more photos:

I originally meant to copy this gown from the KCI collection.

 But then the gown felt plain so I added some trim. Here are a few pics from Costume Con 2009.  (I didn't have a cap yet to wear under the hat, but the hat is another one that came from The Patriot!)


  1. This is one of my favorite dresses from the Kyoto book (one of my bibles!) Fantastic!

  2. Thanks, Ginger! I've always loved this gown too!
