So i have been invited to a fancy dress party in November and the theme is Downton Abbey. For those who have never seen it its set between 1912 and 1921. I am looking for a suitable pattern to be able to make a decent costume similar to what the Lady's of the era would wear to evening events.
Any recommendations?
Cheers

Would that be Edith's almost-wedding dress? LOL! Does it include the veil? I have been asked to make a veil for my niece's wedding and I loved Edith's.
