The Girl on the Slow Path by Cherazor The Girl on the Slow Path by Cherazor

I've always wanted to make myself a ridiculously huge historical dress, so when I saw Madame de Pompadour's incredible dresses in the Doctor Who episode "the Girl in the Fireplace"...well, I finally had an excuse then, didn't I? :XD: The dress was a lot of fun to make and, while it wasn't hard per say, I had to a lot of things I've never done before. I've made entire suits and trench coats, but I've never had to gather anything before, for instance!

To my utter surprise, I was even lucky enough to win first prize for "Best Craftsmanship" at NärCon Vinter about a week ago.

Except for the fact that I've been drowning in school work and stuff, yeah. *laughs*

I've been roasting alive, but I'll live. Any plans to do something related to the DW anniversary special in November?

I'm glad to hear that, at least. :) Well, I have no concrete plans at the moment. I might attend the official DW celebration in the UK, depending on the state of my wallet, but I'm not sure yet. ^^

Beautiful! What kind of fabric did you use? It looks like really nice quality...

The main dress fabric was a polyester/cotton fabric that I managed to find after much searching. It's absolutely gorgeous, I have to agree. I fell completely in love with it when I found it. ^^;

Oh, no problem. Are you planning a Reinette costume of your own? :aww:

Not her specifically, but I have a pattern for a dress from the same era that I've been meaning to make. I might end up making hers though, because I tend to end up making specific cosplays even when I'm just trying to make a general period dress. :)

Amazing everything! I love how your dress turned out and you weren't kidding when you said that you found the perfect location!

You're too kind. The dress coming out well is probably something you should be credited for - you were the one who sent me the pattern, after all! :hug: The location is pretty brilliant, isn't it? One of the good things about living in Sweden - we have a lot of castles and castle-like buildings. It's lucky this one's completely open for the public, too!
