Pride & Prejudice inspired Dress

Screenshot from the 1995 Pride & Prejudice

I was determined to make myself a new dress for Christmas. It would also fit into the last Historical Sew Monthly challenge of 2015. 

I love Elizabeth Bennett's dresses in the 1995 Pride & Prejudice. Many of them have ties at the sleeve which are so lovely! So I used my drawstring dress pattern from Sense & Sensibility. I knew that the bodice wouldn't be the same, but I was just going for the general look of the thing. 

Another look at the whole dress and the ties at the sleeves.

As I wanted it for Christmas I used the sewing machine, and was thrilled by how quickly the dress came together! 

My dress! I wore it on Christmas.
