Outlander – I don’t think I have to say more… the show has a beautiful aesthetic with gorgeous research in fashion of the time. The bold fabrics and voluminous designs are beautiful but with a modern sensibility. I was captivated for season 2 when the Frasers were swirled into the dramas of Versailles. After entrenched in its drama, I picked the Garden Encounter dress. The original fabric was more a $100 USD a yard, and no longer in production. To mimic the Chintz fabric I brought 10 yards of a twill fabric and planned to use 3D appliques ad machine embroidery designs. It took many days for the embroidery alone! I explored and tried many ways to make the embroidery looked like the original fabric. I think the result is really pretty.
