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?
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.
