I also design historical costumes based on Historical TV shows. Since the Duchess of Cambridge is a big fan of the series Downton Abbey I created a few outfits from the TV series. This outfit is from Season 2 from the scene where Matthew and Mary dance and Lavinia secretly catches them kissing.
The pattern I created myself and is hand knitted. The dress and shoes are soft navy. The black thing in the front is crochet with black embroidery floss. The gloves are black yarn.
Yarns used: Red Heart Soft Navy and Caron Simply Soft Black
