Years ago I was in a British literature class and we were going on a field trip to Ashland to see two Shakespeare plays. Three days before the trip, my friend Jenna called and asked if I want to dress up with her (she had made a beautiful gown earlier that year). We met at the fabric store, spent hours picking out the right materials, and I spent the next two days in whirlwind of sewing!
The blue fabric actually has silver pinstripes, and the back is laced up with a silver cord. I have worn this gown many times since its debut in Ashland, but the dagger was only recently added to the ensemble. There is also a leather sheath I made for my arm so I can hide it in my sleeve.
