Started this gown a year ago, actually, and finally finished it to wear to a couple of candlelit house tours in the Philadelphia area a couple weeks back.

Made of mid-weight plain weave cranberry colored wool, bodice lined in natural colored linen, hand-sewn with silk thread.
I'm not 100% pleased with the sleeves' fit, but sleeves are my Achilles heel! Still learning...
And I am pleased with how the back pleats came out.
