Red & White Striped gown

I finally finished my red & white striped gown, which is modeled on (but not an exact replica of) this gown from the Met. (

It was the first time I tried this style of bodice. (It fits me better than the dress form.)

Here's some images of the Met gown - my fabric has thinner stripes, but it was what I had on hand! I also just did a one part sleeve.


  1. I love it! Want one of these for myself!!! I have plans to make something similar, but a lot simpler as I am not so good at sewing.

  2. ooh very pretty,I love the stripes. you did a really nice job!
