The dress is one I made for a university presentation using Simplicity 3723 pattern. I really liked it, but wanted to jazz it up some more.
The lace on the sleeves is crocheted. I adapted the pattern from the skirt of an angel ornament. It was then hand stitched on.
The lace collar is also crocheted. Again I adapted the pattern, this time it was from a collar I found in my grandmotherís house.
The shawl I crochet using scraps I found at my motherís, grandmotherís and friendís house.
The bonnet was in some ways the most difficult part of this costume. The pattern is based on a dollís bonnet pattern. I used some laced that had belonged to my great-grandmother as trim.
