My husband and I dressed up for a Hallowe’en dance this year as Miss Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy. We were supposed to be dressed as a matching couple and I was surprised when my husband agreed to be “Mr. Darcy.”
We had a great night – we ran out of time getting the costumes ready, so I was missing my petticoat and needed to wear a slip (I did have the short stays and chemise) and my husband had to wear regular pants and a short top hat. All in all we felt wonderful and I had great posture in my stays for the evening!
I had the embroidered fabric for my gown for several years, but from the moment I saw it I thought of this dress. I used cotton muslin for the lining. I found some lovely little leather ballet-style moccasins to match my dress as well.
Absolutely charming! Your dress is beautiful (I love embroidered white material, too), and your husband looks dashing as Mr. Darcy. Fantastic!
