Thank you! Yeah, the pleating was a labor of love...labor being the operative word! But so worth it :)

I can only imagine how much your hands hurts after pleating all that fabric.

Yes, it was certainly laborious and time consuming! Thank god for free downloads of audio books (librivox.org)

I do believe this is my favourite of all your gowns so far! Any plans for a hat to coordinate with it?

Thank you! *gasps and faints* A HAT??? Woman, I'm exhausted from making this huge thing and you want a MATCHING HAT??

Well...OK!!

Hi, I've been lurking around here (and your other LJ) for a while, but realized I've never introduced myself. I hope it's okay that I've friended you!

The attention to detail in this gown is unbelievable! It's a jaw dropper! Wowie!

Where will it make it's debut?

Hello! Thank you so much! Yeah, black dresses are all in the detail. They need texture or fancy draping or they become a bit boring.

I'll be wearing it to a reception for the new Renoir exhibit at the Philadelphia Museum of Art in August.

So awesome. I love the trims. Must have taken you a while to sew them on!

Date: 2010-07-15 01:03 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] madamekat.livejournal.com
Thank you! Yes, the trims were very labor-intensive to make, and/or pin, and sew in place. The skirt is just huge and it required miles of trim.

How lovely. Those ruffles look like they were torturous!

Thank you! Yeah, the trim was killer!

wow, even for your normally awesome level of dress-making - that is awesome! It looks exactly like the picture, and you could easily put it up on one of those auction or museum sites and no one would no any better (although it would be in oddly excellent condition for a Victorian dress)

Date: 2010-07-15 01:06 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] madamekat.livejournal.com
Wow, thank you so much! I love hearing it looks like the fashion plate and a "real" dress! *happy dance*
