1880 blue silk dinner dress by hollymessinger 1880 blue silk dinner dress by hollymessinger
God, I loved this dress. I still regret selling it. I picked up this printed dupioni silk super-cheap at Hobby Lobby, back when I couldn't afford to buy it, but I fell in love.

Based off some Truly Victorian patterns. Underskirt is a polyester cross-weave in navy/black.

You can order a custom version of this dress through my Etsy shop:

This is sooo pretty! It's probably my favorite dress from your gallery :)

Good luck on your Poison Ivy costume; I'm sure that leftover green fabric will work great :D

I still miss that blue dress. *sigh* It's like missing a favorite pet that died.

Oh, the green is working great! I did the basic corset last night and it is drool-worthy.

Absolutely stunning, as per usual. You are so amazingly talented you make me want to cry.

It really looks beautiful, although it would have been interesting to mix the Victorian patterns with modern (maybe bright colours?) fashion.
If you don't mind me asking: How much did you actually pay for the silk?

It's been so long I don't remember the price. Probably between $30-50, given my budget at the time.

I'll leave the mix-and-mod to others; I'm a traditionalist.
