Gold Silk Gown

Gold Silk Gown
This gown was actually made years and years ago. It was supposed to be Elizabeth's gold gown from Pirates of the Caribbean : Curse of the Black Pearl. I finished the main part of the gown, and then I set it aside and never worked on it again. Well, while getting ready for Scarborough Faire, when none of my Elizabethan gowns inspired me, I decided to take it out again. I wore it with the same underskirt and stomacher that I made for the blue gown.
The dress itself is tone on tone gold silk. The back is one huge piece of fabric that is pleated en fourreau, with a bit of piping on the upper seam. The underskirt is dark gold silk essence with a large ruffle at the hem and decorative ruching. The stomacher is the same dark gold, with lighter gold trim in a zig-zag design.
