18th Century Belle (Original Design)

18th century inspired Belle costume, my original design based on extant examples of shepherdess paintings and 18th century Hungarian court dress. Dress is made from teal blue cotton and self-patterned. Bodice is boned and features unique ladder lacing detail. Skirt features pintucking on hem. Under layers include stays, ruffled petticoat, and chemise made of window-pane check cotton lawn.
