I really love making these Victorian type outfits. It consists of a bodice and skirt.
Because of the way I make these outfits, they can fit on both my Ellowyne Wilde and Mina, my 1/4th size BJD. Mina, though bustier than El, just has the laces looser on the back.
I've made 5 of these dresses so far, and most of them are some shade of purple. I truly love the bodices!
I made one outfit so see if I might sell it. I get so attached to my work!
Here it is! My Victorian Scarlet:
P.S. Don't mind the smudging in some of the pictures - my table is overrun by junk mail...
