Colonial Christmas Dress

I tried to make this dress as period correct as I possibly could (well within reason). The bodice is lined with linen and the dress is made out of 100% silk dupioni. I hand sewed a blind hem on the over skirt, the trim was also done by hand. As well as some eyelets in the back.
Making this a doll dress was the next best thing to making a full size costume:)
