It's for a friend.  I think this dress has the most hand-sewing I've ever done in a single garments (what with the shirring, the other shirring, the hems, gauging, and the trim).



Some more details here.

Love the style, and you've achieved that light-handed look that only comes from hand-sewing and knowing what you're doing. Beautiful!

It looks beautiful! I cannot imagine making a three tiered dress! I've made a ruffled, trained skirt for a later period, and sewed it all by hand and that was torturous! (The only way I got through was watching the Civil War Series by Ken Burns while I worked.. I think perhaps Laurence of Arabia was used as well!)  Cheesy Wonderful job!

It is amazing how many documentaries and mini-series one can get through while sewing. Wink  Fortunately on this one, I was able to take the bodice and sleeve shirring/hems/trim on bus.  The skirts happened during my 'Allan Rickman Memorial Film Fest'.

Ah, another Rickman fan!  I'd have had a hard time keeping an eye on my sewing during that!

Beautiful dress!
