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 :)

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!

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: 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, 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 :)
