So this dress is my first really froofy dress.  It makes me feel all girlie and pretty – thus this outfit is my Pretty Pretty Princess outfit.

The Challenge: Pretty Pretty Princesses

Fabric:Linen, cotton, taffeta, tassels and lace

Pattern: Truly Victorian

Year: 1870’s

Notions:hooks, eyes, covered buttons, twill tape

How historically accurate is it? natural fabrics, but modern construction (I used a machine)

Hours to complete:The entire outfit took quite a while for me.  I think all in all I’ve been working on it since mid-May – so about a month?

First worn: Tissot Picnic

Total cost: $40 or so for trim
