Striped Summer-gown by Stahlrose Striped Summer-gown by Stahlrose
Finally I got pictures of this gown I made some longer ago.

It was not really a commission because I made the skirts just for fun and lost interest in finishig the gown so the skirts were put away ...

Then a lady who plays in a musical group (the yonly do it as a hobby) asked me, after I made a chemise for her if I had any gowns that I would sell.

I had, and so I gave her the grey and black bustle gown that I only wore once for a few pictures and offered her those skirts as well.
And she asked me if I could make her a matching bodice ... and that's the result :)

I'm quite pleased. I would never have worn that gown myself, too bright ;) but it suits her really good, don't you think?

The gown is made of a white and grey striped linen imitation because I didn't take care of being super-authentic, neverthelsess the fabric is lovely for it.
It's just the perfect victorian summer gown with the shorter sleeves and all that ruffles ...

All of your creations are just lovely. I comment on this one specifically because I can't for the life of me find a good tutorial for all the skirt gathers and ruffles. Do you have any pointers? Where did you learn how to do this? I've done a bit of experimenting on my own, but I can never get it quite right (and I'm scared of wasting more fabric in trial-and-error).

This has worked beautifully. I would not have given this fabric a second thought if I had seen it on its own. You have transformed it into a really smart summer dress. It does suit her too.

I wouldn't have bought it for myself as well but it looked so much like it wanted to become such a gown ;)

Well, I didn't intend to wear that gown myself as I stared to make the skirts, I desperately needed money ;)

Very pretty. Love the skirt drapery! Did you have a pattern for that?

Thanks :)

I made the drapery without a pattern, I just cut two pieces of fabric and made a lot of pleats and that :D
