The majority of garments I create are custom made/custom order garments. This garment is a custom designed gown taken from the pages of Laura Ingalls Wilder’s books. This gown will be worn for Laura Ingalls Wilder and American frontier interpretations.
This client was very hands on and had a definite idea of how she wanted her final dress to look. She provided fabric and detailed notes about how and with what it was to be trimmed.
I designed and constructed the dress. It is made of 100% reproduction cotton calico. The bodice is fully lined. The trim is navy blue braid and the buttons are silk taffeta. I also made the following cotton undergarments:
Included is a matching straw bonnet.
Overall, this client was very pleased with her garments and will reorder again sometime soon!
