Mourning Dress

Postby Melly » Tue Jul 30, 2013 11:19 pm

Made for Halloween at Disneyland Paris, not worn yet :) I know it's bad but this dress has been made to be worn over a sweater... Because November in Paris... it's very cold!

Beautiful dress! I can totally understand the need to put a sweater under it, autumn here in Austria is probably as freezy as in France. :D
I was planning to make chemise and drawers and maybe a petticoat out of cotton flannel for a more authentic insolation against the cold, but haven't got around to do it yet. Maybe that's an idea for you? :)

A ''Damart'' is good in winter.

Is it the week end: Monte-Cristo ?

Pretty cold at the English festivals in the winter months too! Our victorian counterparts MUST have had warm foundation garments also. On the other hand, you find from churchyard headstones in England, that a good deal more people died in the winter months at that time!
