My Word! The reality is you have to put this much garment up and through your machine...and as complex as it must be....I can't even imagine! You must be a sewing genius because your costume (s) are amazing!!! So much detail! I'm beyond impressed!

Whoa...awesome! I wouldn't even attempt something like this. It's gorgeous, and I can only imagine how difficult this must have been. Kudos! I wonder if this gown is for an Elizabethan Faire or a play?

Oh geez, so many comments! I did not expect that :) @SewLibra: It was for a fantasy/historical fair here in The Netherlands. It's actually one of the biggest in Europe and a lot of fun. @prostheticsgirl: I don't think I have a lot of pictures of the process sadly. Tend to forget that :)

I'm a free member of this website koffeegypsy so I can't seem to send you a message :( Does it work if you send me a message first? If not, you can also go to for info on that fantasy fair (called Elfia, it is held in Haarzuilens in April and in Arcen in September).

This is amazing! I love your reproduction of Elizabeth's Ditchy gown! Such attention to detail! :)

You make a spectacular Elizabeth! Thanks for the review; I'm about to embark on PP 46 (the Saxon gown), and the instructions are kind of intimidating, and they're really aren't a ton of reviews out there. It's nice to see these patterns made up. :)

Aaaah thanks girls! Don't let it get to you stirwatersblue!! Take your time to figure out how the pattern pieces should go (with a mock up for example) without looking at the instructions too much. Which view will you be making?
