I am so emotionally drained from this “vacation” that I am having trouble adjusting to my normal life again.

The original inspiration for this dress is from a painting called Joanna of Aragon by Raphael and Gulio Romano that I saw in person at the Louvre in August. But I ended up pulling different design elements I loved from the Tudor, Renaissance, and Elizabethan era, so it’s a bit of a mishmash.

I used Simplicity 3782 as a starting point for the pattern since this was my first time making a corset. Using heavy duty hvac cable ties as boning, the corset actually cinched me in quite effectively for a true conical shape and it was comfortable to boot. But because of the boning getting in the way of my sewing machine, I ended up having to hand stitch most everything including the sleeves and all the finishes.

And yes, everything you see here other than the gold lace and the brooch can be found in Joann Fabrics. The gold and the burgundy is the same fabric but reversed. I love the subtle gold slubs on the burgundy side.

Detail shots. Used a lot of different techniques in this dress that I only thought about theoretically before: built in corset with boning, grommet insertion, cartridge pleating, cording insertion, etc. Also I’ve always wanted to draft slashed sleeves like these.

if you are under 18:

  • your nudes are child pornography 
  • people you send them to can be charged with possession of child pornography
  • you can be charged with distribution of child pornography 
  • don’t take nudes

This is not about body shaming, this is not about ‘telling you what to do with your sexuality’ this is literally a federal crime don’t fuck with the law okay.
