General description:

This is the first of three costumes for our children. They were actually made for the costume contest but unfortunately only children over 12 could take part.

The underdress has a small train and a wide round neckline. The upper sleeves are embroidered with the floral pattern of the original dress (thank you for that!) and there are wide trims at the neckline and sleeves. The trims are also embroidered and beaded with bugle beads and rhinestones. The lower sleeves are very wide and hemmed with a rolled hem.

The jumper is held by a narrow band in silver which is embroidered and beaded. The silk velvet jumper has a long train and is also hemmed with a rolled hem.

The cloak is cut as a circle and the silk velvet is painted with silver colour. The hood is very big and turned around in the back. The cloak has also a train.

This was really our most glittering dress.
