I was really inspired by watching the mini series Wives and Daughters.  Between the TV 1830's pattern and this museum website (, I had the pattern I wanted.

I started with a corded petticoat, which I made with helpful instructions from many of you followers here.  Yarn is inside each row and I starched the life out of it.


  1. I have serious love for this whole look. I'm so glad I saw it in person! :-)

  2. That's such a realistic Apollo Knot

  3. Ok, seriously...this has got to be my all time favorite dress that you have made. I adore it! I am so impressed with your points and how you did the whole dress! And your hair????? the fan!!! You so totally rock!
