The pattern was Truly Victorian #102 and it took only one day to make.
I also added an antique veil to my top hat and a strap to my victorian purse. There are still some small things on my to-do-list but I almost finished preparing for the Anton Pieck Parade.
Next year I would like to be completly dressed in black from the skin up. This means making a pair of black drawers and a bustle. I already dyed my white petticoat, originally the mock-up for my bustle skirt, black. With some small adjustments this could be used to complete the set.
Next year I would also like to make this hat from patterns of time.
It reminds me of the hat worn by Rachel McAdams as Irene Adler in Sherlock Holmes (2009)
