Early 1780s Dutch Print Italian Gown


This ended up being my favorite gown to wear at Costume College. Comfortable and easy to wear!

The gown is entirely hand sewn using period construction methods and was draped on the body. I wore it with fine muslin wrist ruffles, kerchief, and petticoat, as well as the beautiful silk gauze apron that Emma made for my birthday.

Hello! Could you describe the beautiful silk apron a little bit more? I'd love to know about the waist and waistband. Is it on a drawstring or gathered and sewn to a waistband with ties? What is the material the waistband (?) and/ or ties/drawstring is made of? Silk ribbon? Is lace sewn to the edge? And can you post any close-up photos of it? Thank you! This is one of my most favorite gowns and your pleats are wonderful. You look so beautiful!

Few weeks ago my girlfriend told me that she was fed up, so she packed her stuff and left me while I was taking a walk to cool off. When I got back, I was so messed up because I didn't even know what to do, it was like my whole life was coming to an end. That night I drove to a friend’s house and he was nice enough to give me a description of a man who did spells that could bring her back for me. He said this man brought her fiancĂ©e back to him after 2days. The man's email is emutemple@gamil.com, it was this man that then did a spell and brought Claire back to my life. She was now so humble and calm, she was respectful and lovely even more than i can imagine. This man is really strong and accountable. I never regret anything through him. meet him if you need help in your love life. visit his website you may find your solution there https://emutemple.wordpress.com/
