The Millias Dress from the painting of the three Sisiters...January 2014.
This was a wonderful commission to make. A repeat customer Hillary, whom has a love for period costume asked Uptight to make a dress based on the one from the Millais Painting of the Three Sisters, based on costumes from aprox 1872.
This design comprised of many pieces, from the underwear corset and bloomers, crin, petticoat, top skirt, bustle, bodice and pink flower and sash decoration, and the bag and chocker to finish it all off!
All pieces were made separately, so they can all be put on individually in a mix and match fashion, allowing for many different looks.
