Tissot dress, Summer 2010

I was inspired by a dress that Tissot painted a number of times.  Sometimes it has blue ribbons, sometimes yellow.  I chose pink!  Anyway, I saw this 1878 Harper's Bazar fashion plate and knew I'd found my Summer Victorian dress:

Beth was kind enough to share 12 yards of a sheer gauzy cotton with tone on tone stripes, and I began the dress.  I lined it in pink cotton.  Hat is from Truly Victorian, trimmed by me.  She doesn't sell these hats anymore, sadly.
