Tudor Inspired

This dress was made as a birthday present for myself. My birth month is amethyst so the gown bodice is purple velvet with both pale and dark amethysts set into the bodice jewelry. The undergown is gold striped brocade with lavender silk sleeves. This was not an authentic dress and it wasn't meant to be. Just a party dress to have fun in. I believe the pattern is Simplicity.

The bodice jewelry was made with help from Adam. The stones are real, the pearls are glass. In the future I would use different settings for the stones but at the time they were the best I could find. There are earrings that match.
