I've been meaning to post this for a while. I made this for the always fabulous Donna Wing (http://www.donnawing.com/) for VTBC's Cold Blooded at Cold spring. She play nancy Clem, the first women to be tried for murder in the state of Indiana.
The cuffs and collar are dettachable to give the dress a plainer option should the the character call for it. I made the reticule with the left over fabric. I love giving actors a place to carry small items or props without interfereing with the costume.
