I finally finished my Elizabethan gown "in the Polish fashion" (closed with frogs)--I have been sewing on frogs a few at a time for months, since I hate it so.

It's loosely based on the Darnley Portrait and the Peace Portrait of Elizabeth I. It's my first attempt at a fitted Elizabethan gown and I'm still working out some problems with the doublet pattern, but overall I'm quite happy with it.

A photo! )

More commentary at my DW account (including what I'm going to fix next time around) and photos at my Flickr account.

I did make a necklace and girdle to go with it, but I couldn't find them before the event last Saturday (I finished attaching the frogs at 12:30 am the night before).
