Here is a project I finished over the weekend. It was intended to be a Victorian Grieving Widow to compliment Mr. W's Victorian Undertaker. However, things got busy and I didn't finish on time.

The bodice is black, 100% wool gaberdine. The drape, train, ruffles and rosettes are made from bridal weight satin. The skirt is the same dark blue damask that I used for Mr. W's costume, with black lace overlay.

The bodice is boned and vast amounts of netting was used for the train's bustle.

I can't wait to wear this costume on Halloween!

stunning. and i do love lace. that bussle is perfect. while everyone else seems to be loving the glitter and sequins right now, which don't get me wrong, i like it, but my passion is with lace and ruffles. so what does the outfit that goes with this look like? nice job

Thank you all very much. You are all too kind. This is my hobby that I love and, quite frankly, it keeps me out of mischief! lol

halloweenscene, I've attached pictures of my husband's costume. It's made from the same wool, blue damask and satin as my gown. The idea is although he is the undertaker and I'm the grieving widow, we are both vampires, hee hee... At least we're ready for 2009 now!

It's great to see that the talents of forum members are not just confined to prop making.

These are beautiful costumes Mrs W, worthy of a place on any (black) catwalk:)
