Molly Gibson

This was a dress I made a few years ago from Sense & Sensibility's Romantic Era pattern, and I got inspired to make it when watching Wives and Daughters and seeing Molly's white ball gown.  I changed up the sleeves and the neckline (which didn't turn out quite right... oh well). The neck line, sleeve bands and sleeve wings are hand embroidered. The dress closes with an invisible zipper in the back. The skirt is gathered with a smooth front and the bodice is also gathered. I would probably change a lot of to the dress now, but I was still happy with the result. Enjoy the photos!

Right after I finished sewing!

Weird pose, but I don't have many photos of the front, so this one had to do....
