1900s Maude's Summer Day Dress

Here's the completed project with bodice, skirt, belt and hat. My hair is in a Gibson Girl hairstyle and I've accessorised with gloves.

Mostly sewn by machine and with polyester fabric, so not historically accurate, but pretty! I'm really pleased with this costume and it went together relatively easily.

Ellie Morris is a 17 year old studying Art and Design in college, with the hopes of someday working in costume design for film and theater, as well as making bespoke historical garments for special occasions. She is also a published author of historical and romantic fiction, and When the Summer Ends is her first novel. Here is Miss Morris's online costume and design portfolio, which in the upcoming years will hopefully be filled with historical costumes and sketches!
