SEWING 

My Indie Untangled dress was made using a modified version of McCall's M7315
Fabric is Double Gauze and Lace.

I've also decided to go as some kind of historical vampire for Halloween, since I'm making a corset using Butterick B4254.

I'm going to also make a shift to wear with it using Laughing Moon Mercantile Ladie's Victorian Underwear #100
