Replica Ironwork Worth Gown

I have been working away at this gown in semi-secret since the start of this year. There are of course a million things I would do differently next time, but I am absolutely thrilled with how it turned out. I have 127 hours into this dress from the moment I began handling fabric.

I wore this at last night's Costume College Gala. I will do a proper write up about how I digitized the motif and executed the appliqué, but for now here are a couple of photos. 



  • Beautiful! I have such admiration for those of you who dream so grandly—and then pull it off! What’s next?

  • I’m so eager to read all about it!
