What is it? An vampire dress inspired by 1900-1910 lace dresses.
Material: cotton ( bed sheet for skirt, duvet cover for blouse), silk/hemp fabric for the belt, dead dino (a k a some random synthetic fabric) lace curtain, cotton embroidered lace.
Pattern: skirt from Truly Victorian, belt and blouse drafted by me.
How historically accurate is it? Not much! The skirt is good in construction for an underskirt, but would typically have been silk, and obviously not seen. Overskirt is not even following the shape of the skirt. Blouse have the right shape and the pin tucks are ok, but the lace placement is not. Also, is way too sloppy and in too cheap materials for a dress of this kind. Good it was never intended to be historically accurate, or even to be worn in good light conditions!
Hours to complete: about 2-3 h for the new parts, that is, the blouse and belt.
First worn: at a haunted board-game night with some friends.
Total cost: 0, as everything was remnants of other projects, from my stash (and the lace curtain is still usable as curtain!). 129 sek if I add the cost of the red lipstick...
