Mary's Red Dress from Downton Abbey

This dress was a commission from a repeat client of mine - she always gives me the most fabulous projects! I made this in January 2012. I have been interested in Edwardian era clothing ever since Titanic. I haven't made a Rose Dawson dress yet, but this certainly satisfied the itch. This gorgeous gown has red chiffon sleeves and belt over a satin base. The skirt is a gold tulle covered with delicate pearl beading. I even added cranberry drop beads to the hem for that elegant tinkle of beads when walking. So fabulous!
