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:

That's very pretty, and the pattern on the fabric looks quite authentic!

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.

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.
