Fabric: red poly silk taffeta with aubtle stripe, Cotton lining.
Pattern: Self drafted using Butterick 4254 (View B) as a starting point before draping on the stand.
Notions: boning, embroidery floss, ribbon, lace, self covered buttons.
How historically accurate is it? Its the closest I could get with my skills and budget. I used the patterns in patterns of fashion as reference.
Hours to complete: From first draft to basic completeness. 3 weeks.
First worn: For photo's...its for an event next year.
Total cost: Fabric £30 (this is a bit of a guess as I forgot to note the amount of fabric I bought but the 'silk' was 65" wide about 4 meters, the lining was just a scrap I had of curtain lining.) Everything else is from my stash so I no longer know the cost.
UPDATE! So I've now had a chance to take photo's of the dress with trim.
