1870 traveling dress showcased on Walks Alone by Sandi Rog

Kinda delayed, but better late than never 🙂
This is the mock-up cover of the book that I made the dress for last fall. The eBook is available on Amazon now, as well as the paperback for preorder. The paperback will be available in mid-June!

Walks Alone cover mock-up

Remember the 1870 dress that I made? You can now see the mock-up for the cover featuring it here!

The back cover will have a picture showing the dress details better 🙂

Another update on the 1870 dress

The overskirt is almost finished, too, but including that in the picture would give too much away! (Please forgive the poor quality…I must get back to sewing!)

My latest journey into historical reproduction

I have recently been hired to make an 1870 traveling dress that will be on the cover of a new historical novel, Walks Alone by Sandi Rog, published by White Fire Publishing. It will be coming out in January 2012.

The picture is of the mock-up on my new dress form; the real fabric is a beautiful sage green wool. I’m draping the pattern for the bustle skirt myself and using Truly Victorian patterns for the bodice and apron drape.
