After much work, our Elizabeth Bennet gown is finally ready to reveal!

I have always loved the 1995 miniseries of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. So when I found a cream silk-cotton sateen fabric in my stash that reminded me of one of the gowns Jennifer Ehle wore as Elizabeth Bennet, I knew we had a new project!
We started by studying screen-caps from the film. The dress was covered with rich tone on tone embroidery. Thankfully we were up to an embroidery challenge! I carefully drew a copy of the embroidery design and traced it onto the material. Next we literally spent days embroidering! It was a lot of work, but so worth it in the end! After the embroidery was finally complete, construction began! We stayed as close to the original as possible. The gown features many period details including: and A-line skirt that turns in to a pleated skirt at the back, softly gathered elbow length sleeves, and a sweet bow at the back. The bodice is loaded with details such as ruching at the square neckline, strips of embroidery top stitched to the front, and a waistband. The bodice is fully lined, and all seams are finished. Snap closures.

This dress is totally one of kind and will not be made again!

My doll, props, etc, are not included. This listing is for the gown only.

All my doll clothes are made by me in my smoke and pet free home. Please contact me with any questions you may have, and thank you for looking!
