Victorian Mourning Dress by Katikut Victorian Mourning Dress by Katikut
Another dress I'll wear at Disneyland fir the next Halloween! Haunted Mansion POWAAAAAAAAAA!
It's a simple clack cotton dress, worn over a Bustle and a corset. I also wear a sweater under the dress because I don't want to be cold in October.

Thank you so much for your fast reply:) Sorry to bother you again, Are the patterns complicated? What fabric would be best to use? Thanks for all your help. If you ever consider selling this outfit. Please let me know! Best Regards.

I've use a cotton, quite thin, but the lining is more heavy. You can take taffetas, silk, wool, anything, but cotton is the less expensive :) The pieces weren't too complicated for the bodice, but the tail may represent some difficulties. The skirt and apron are really easy to make :)

Thank you so much:) I really appreciate all the information. I will do my best and hope it looks as beautiful as yours. I'm hosting a Victorian Halloween Party in October; I hope I don't mess up! Wish me luck:)
PS: If you ever consider selling the dress; please let me know. I would give you my email, but don't know if that's allow. I mostly register because I felt in love with your lovely dress:)
Thank you for your time!
Best Regards~

Thank you so much! I'd love to seel abroad but I've lost SO many packages that I'm always afraid to sell T_T I'll maybe make commissions someday if I have to leave my work (baby projects, and all XD) but for the moment it's not scheduled :) If you want to learn more about the dress, visit my blog here: dentelleetsatin.blogspot.com It's also translated (badly) in english. I can't remember if I had detailed the construction of this one a lot since it has been made very quickly :D Good luck

All the patterns are coming from truly victorian.com, a very very good website! The patterns are wonderful! I'd say 1.5y for the bodice, 3y for the skirt, 2y for the apron. But it can be more with the ruffles :)

Sorry it was because I was on my mother's computer and it translates everything... So I didn't noticed that you were speaking in english since your message was tranlslated haha! I was saying that I didn't know what this series (movie?) was, and I was interested since many people told me this; sorry again about my first message :D

"The Woman in Black" is a movie starring Daniel Radcliffe, by Hammer Films; a sequel to it is being made. The title ghost wears a black dress similar to this one, so I thought maybe you got inspired to make one, based on this character. Sorry for the confusion. >_<;

Sweet dress!! I worn you though, unless you are going to a special event, costumes are not permitted in the park. See: "What is the best way to dress for a day at the parks? Is there any clothing that isn't permissible?" [link] :/

Oh you know, I'm a Disneyland specialist it's my second home and I know what is permitted or not :) you are right it's forbidden when you are more than 13. But I'll wear this for Halloween (I don't remember but I think it's said in my description ? I'm on a phone it's not easy to verify haha :D) but in our Disneyland, you have the right to wear a costume for the terrorific night and the mickey night which are two days dedicated to Halloween :D

Nah, it says masks and adult costumes aren't. This is just a dress. I think that'll be fine.

It was pretty good. Scared the crap out of me though. I mean, it was more creepy than scary, but the little boy's room was just.....*shiver* (Horrifying scene for those with pediophobia and coulrophobia)
