Not much time for sewing since we moved and I miss you guys!! However, I did mostly finish the bodice to the 1884 reception gown (if you forget, it's here: http://madamemodiste.livejournal.com/107909.html)

It still needs sleeve cuff trim and some lace at the bust, but it's generally done. I wore it to Linsey and Duncan's wedding a week and a half ago.



No plans to make anything until the semester is over next month, so I'll have to live vicariously through you ladies!

Beautiful!

I was just looking at victorian gown patterns last night and thought of you, wondered what you were working on! I'm thinking about making that lovely Polonaise from Truly Victorian out of a nice thick taffeta or bengaline. That whole ensemble takes a ton of fabric!

Awww, that's so nice! And I love to hear what you guys are thinking about and working on, too.

Just be careful that your fabric for the polonaise isn't too stiff/crisp or it won't do the drapery effect well in the back. I learned that lesson myself when I used a satin taffeta that was too crisp for the 1886 asymmetrical drapery add-on. Opps! But I bet the bengaline will be perfect.

Oh thanks for the tip! I'd hate to spend $100 or more on fabric and have it not work well!

Pretty!
And I love that you actually get to wear your historical stuff to "IRL" events! ;)
