Accompanying costume: Marie Antoinette
During the summer of 2015, I made the popular “blue dress with red belt” gown from the Sophia Coppola movie Marie Antoinette. I’ve been drooling over this gown ever since I first saw the movie in 2006. I’m so happy I finally made it!
Interesting fact: This gown is what spurred my obsession with 18th century clothing. I started doing the research for it several years ago, and fell down the rabbit hole. All of the pieces I have made until now were honestly practice for this one. I am extremely proud of how it turned out! It is one of the most accurate movie replicas I’ve made, if not the most accurate.

More detailed construction notes and pics tbd, but this is a late 18th century polonaise style gown. I drafted the pattern from the book, The Cut of Women’s Clothing.

This is my very first 18th century gown, and meant to be more of a practice dress. I purposefully used not 100% accurate materials since it was for practice, and I got them for super cheap. Its not perfect and I have a bit more to work on execution-wise, but it was fun to make and is still super pretty!
The first batch of images were taken at Callanwolde Fine Arts Center by Dim Horizon Studio. I had just shot another costume and had the same makeup on, and also did a super quickie “hedgehog” style by shoving frizzy hairpieces under my hat, haha. Not accurate, but I think it looks pretty and avante garde in a way. :)
