Hattie currently has a muff, an apron, a capelet and a renaissance style gown. Today I'll talk about the gown, but I've added this photo to show how it all goes together.
It's McCalls 5155. I made it in an embroidered cotton batik and trimmed it with a white sparkly cotton lace trim
The belt is trimmed with a different white lace and tied with a purple satin ribbon.
The elbow puffs are white lace over white cotton.
The back hangs loose and if worn without an apron it flows out behind me as I walk in a manner resembling a sack dress.
I just love the mottled purple of the fabric!
