Ah ha! I realized I forgot to post about my 18th Century gown I just finished!
I started this at least two years ago, then it lived in a plastic tub with all the fabric and trim and pattern until a few months ago when I started working on it sporadically off and on. I was making this for the Marie Antoinette tea that our local costume guild had last Sunday, but unfortunately my cold had a relapse and kept me from attending. I did get to take some pictures, though, before being confined to the house. My hubby was a sweetheart and actually powdered my face for me before I left. We made it half way to the freeway before I had my friend turn around and take me home. Oh well. It was fun just driving down the street in a bright yellow mini cooper with huge dresses on. My friend, Addi, who’s great work you can see here on her blog, wore a dress I made several years ago for Costume College, which was from a Wingeo pattern.
The one I just finished was from also Wingeo, and the MAD (and not really period) concoction of trims and fabrics just kind of happened on their own.
