Marie-Therese Gown GIVEAWAY!!!! CLOSED.

October 19, 2008

marie thereseOh, where to begin? Well, let me start off by saying that this was by far the most ambitious dress I've ever sewn. After this, I have fewer qualms about sewing a wedding gown. With all the man hours I put into the gown itself, not withstanding the fabric, I would say this gown is worth $500....if my time was worth $15 an hour. You can do the math. Like I said...ambitious. At least I knew what I was getting into from the beginning.

I fell in love with the idea of doing a french 1700s piece after watching Sofia Coppola's Marie Antoinette. Each candy pink and blue scene made my heart ache and it was all I could think of since. It feels good to finally get all that inspiration out in one big frilly burp.

I spared no expense with this costume. Homemade florets cover the under skirt and creep up along the bodice. I found the blue and black trim at my favorite niche fabric store. It was exactly what I was looking for. I paired it with the pink satin ribbon. A whole SEVEN YARDS worth!!!!




marie therese
What took a chunk of my time was the smocking in the over skirt. You can see a more detailed image near the bottom. I stitched each and every one of the knots myself.

The satin ribbon was also used around the sleeves and tied off with a long flowing bow. As you can see I added a long lace material to the ends of the 3/4 length sleeves and around the neckline.





marie thereseSadly, the neatest part of this gown can't even be seen. That is the historical underpinnings. Yes, I made one of those corsets that bulge out at the sides. I used 'boning' but if I had to do it again I'd use good old fashioned metal. The boning didn't exactly cut it. The dress is a bit heavy but I had to keep fluffing the sides which shouldn't have been necessary.







marie thereseAll you Marie Antoinette voters were so very close. Please don't be confused by the Marie Therese reference. I could have gone with Marie Antoinette but that is so cliche right? Marie Therese was her only daughter. When I watched the movie the little girl reminded me of Lily so I thought she would be more appropriate.








marie thereseAnd YES! That is Lily's real hair! (plus a few Photoshopped curls). I thought it would be harder to poof but you would be surprised what magical results simple hairspray can accomplish. We used Halloween white spray for the color. Lily was pretty good about the whole thing. Taking it out was another story.

Poor Lily, she's had a runny nose for a while now, you can sort of see from the photos that she has a chapped upper lip. I kept having to wipe her nose on my sleeves mid-shoot.
marie thereseI know I say this so often, but this WILL be heartbreaking for me to part with. As with the previous giveaway, I only hope that it goes to someone who can get good use out of it!

If the winning blogger also leaves a comment I will include the rose choker in the giveaway.

And a special thank you to the reader who recommended me to Craft blog for my handkerchief post. I was so flattered!


This costume is BIG. So I would say it could fit a 3T-5T.

Last day for posts is Friday 10/24/08. Winner will be announced Sunday morning! Just in time to get this to you by HALLOWEEN!!!!

As usual, if you would like a chance to win this costume just link back to this post. If you have any questions see the "questions and answers" link to the right. If you use blogger just use the "create a link" link at the bottom of this post. If you don't use blogger, that's fine too. Just create a link on your page as you normally would and I will see it using Technorati.

Elizabeth said... Best Blogger Tips

As the wife of a former costume designer, we are both gobsmacked by your skills and your generosity (as we see your blog OFTEN!). We recently had a mold problem that we didn't know about the ruined all my husband's gorgeous costumes and beautiful projects. There was no helping to save anything...and we were left with just memories. One of his favorite dresses, an Elizabethan dress was totally ruined. This is quite similar. I'd love to surprise him with it for his 30th Birthday! If you sold it, I would buy it! It's beautiful

So I gave my last win to my friend who entered and wanted it soooo badly for her little girl. So if I could win again that would be awesome especially since we still don't have a Halloween costume for Liv.

Blake & Ally said... Best Blogger Tips

P.s. This is the COOlest kid costume I ever saw!

Jennifer said... Best Blogger Tips

The dress is beautiful. And the photos you took of it are wonderful. This is one of those projects that I wish I could do, but I'm afraid it would take a few years worth of sewing classes for me to do that. I can sew almost anything with ONLY straight lines :). I have one little girl who is 3 and would love to dress up in such a fun dress since we're just getting to that wonderful dress up stage.

Kristi said... Best Blogger Tips

Please enter me. My daughter would love it and I would love to see how you made it! I bought a pattern when we were in Williamsburg Virgina, but I'm too intimidated to try it yet!

OMG! There's pink! It's fit for a princess! My 3 year old is freaking out screaming it is hers and she wants it now. You have either made her day when we win it or doomed me to sheer horror when we don't. :)

I don't think 'WOW' even comes close to summing up how I feel about this dress! I have three girls and I would absolutely adore seeing them in this dress. All of them - it would definitely be used for years in our family. :) My oldest will be four in December and I think she'd love wearing this starting...right now!

Kylene said... Best Blogger Tips

Wow, that dress is amazing. I'm somewhat of a novice, but I'm feeling a little inspired to try something a little more complicated than tutu's and PJ pants!

Roxanne =b said... Best Blogger Tips

Bonnie said... Best Blogger Tips
