I made this green Regency era ballgown for the Jane Austen Evening event. The outer fabric is from a green and silver spangled vintage Indian sari. I drafted the bodice using the basic Regency bodice in Hunnisett's Period Costume for Stage and Screen as a guide for period shape and fit, but significantly altered and redrafted it after inspiration from a gown in LACMA's costume collection. The lace is vintage that trims the neckline. The hat is a beret styled turban made of green taffeta and wrapped at the brim in self fabric from ths sari.
